Remember in resignation requests
The country once again recorded a record in resignation requests among workers with a formal contract. There were 6.467 million resignations in the last 12 months until July. This in the midst of still high unemployment, a record number of informal workers and the difficulty of less qualified workers to return to the labor market.
This number is equivalent to 32.4% of the total dismissals of workers in the period (19.984 million). That is, 1 out of 3 dismissals were voluntary (at the request of the worker).
Salary values are one of the reasons for professionals to leave their jobs. Another reason is the diminishing effects of the pandemic on the labor market. Thus, professionals resign to be admitted into positions more suited to their qualifications, with better remuneration.
“Many people remained in jobs that were not consistent with their qualifications due to the need for some income recomposition during the pandemic. But many of them started to leave their jobs to take on more suitable ones”, says Bruno Imaizumi, economist at LCA Consultores.
Services is again the flagship in hiring

In July, 218,900 formal jobs were created. This is a worsening in relation to July last year, when 306,500 formal jobs were created – a drop of 28.6%.
In July 2020, amid the isolation of the first wave of Covid-19, 108,400 formal jobs were opened. In this case, the increase was 102% in job creation in July this year.
