Q. What are average renege rates?
Recent research conducted by Garner reveals the extent of the problem. Based on a survey of 3,600 candidates in June 2022, Gartner’s found that 44% of candidates are currently backing out of their offer acceptances. Plus, nearly half of candidates who accept a role say they are still open to other offers. This is an increase from 36% in 2019.
Gartner’s research provides additional insight into current trends in the 2022 jobs market:
86% of candidates who can work remotely, whether hybrid or fully remote, prefer to work more than 50% of the time remotely. Nearly half say they would forego 10% higher pay for flexibility where they work. 59% said they would be willing to forego a job with 10% higher pay for a job with a better work-life balance.
