Rising Confidence Causing Staff To Move On

Rising confirdence among the workforce is causing an increase in the number of workers quitting their jobs for better positions, concludes a survey by Robert Half which discloses that more and more workers are seeking to boost their career progression by changing employers.

Employees are citing a lack of remuneration/recognition by their company as the primary reason for this increase, with small businesses being worst affected (46 per cent), along with those in the public sector (61 per cent).  There is also evidence that many employees are leaving due to fears over job security. This was cited by 29 per cent of survey respondents while a poor work-life balance was also given as a reason for leaving by a further 28 per cent.

Phil Sheridan, UK managing director of Robert Half, said: “The UK economy is showing signs of expansion, with many companies proactively looking for experienced professionals to fill business-critical roles.

“Employees are clearly no longer waiting for their own employment conditions to improve — with some businesses still enforcing pay freezes – and instead are looking to improve on salary, working conditions and work-life balance within alternative companies.”
