A New Year may mean a fresh start for many, but is your organisation prepared for a potential exodus of up to one third of your staff?
A survey by Glassdoor found many employees are planning on switching jobs this year, with 18% admitting they hope to gain new employment opportunities in the first quarter of 2013.
“Now that it appears that the extreme highs and lows are behind us, the slow and conservative pace employees are seeing with their own employment situation is causing employees to evaluate if now is the time to see if the grass may be greener with another employer,” Rusty Rueff, Glassdoor’s career and workplace expert, told CNBC.
It is little surprise monetary motivations are the main reason employees change jobs (73%), followed by location or commute (55%), career growth opportunities (30%) and the amount of work (22%).
Companies seem to be taking no chances this year though, with employees reporting to receive better benefits this year.
Two thirds said their company is offering perks such as flexible working, casual dressing and remote working.
