Four in five people reading this will stick with their current job next year, according to a new global study from financial services firm Deloitte. The firm surveyed 560 large-business employees across continents and industries. Here’s what they found…
80 percent [of] employees plan to stay with their organizations over the next year, a significant increase from 2011 when nearly 65 percent were planning to leave. Forty-six percent of the survey respondents indicate they are less inclined to move because, in the last 12 months, they have changed jobs (9 percent), were promoted (22 percent), or have taken new positions (15 percent) with their current employers. Surprisingly, however, nearly one-third (31 percent) say they are not satisfied with their jobs.
The top five reasons people leave are lack of career progress (27 percent), better opportunities elsewhere (22 percent), disliking the boss (22 percent), not having a challenge (21 percent), and not getting paid enough (21 percent).
The top three reasons employees stick around involve pay, though they’re also interested in flexible work and praise.
