40% of employed adults say they likely could find a suitable new job within six months—the highest confidence level in six quarters.
Employers beware—your workers are confident that they can find jobs elsewhere, and turnover rates may be about to increase. A survey from Glassdoor.com shows growing confidence about the job market, even as companies continue to squeeze their people on compensation. "This report should put employers on alert,” says Rusty Rueff, Glassdoor.com’s career and workplace expert, and also co-author of Talent Force: A New Manifesto for the Human Side of Business (FT Press/Available now). “We're seeing early warning signs that employment churn will rise, which will be another disruptive and costly outcome of the recession for those who don't prepare. Now is the time for employers to reassess their perspective on the pay and development needs of their employees." The numbers show differing levels of confidence among various gender, age and even marital-status categories. More than 2,040 workers took part in the research, which was conducted by Harris Interactive. For more information, click here .
