Itching for a new job? Apparently you're not alone.
An overwhelming majority of employees intend to pursue new jobs in 2014, according to an online poll of nearly 900 workers in the U.S. and Canada.
Eighty-three percent of the workers said they will "actively seek a new position" next year, while just 5% said they had no intention of seeking a new job, according to Right Management, a career advisory firm. Another 12% said they were not sure whether they would look for new work.
"These numbers should signal a wake-up call for top management, when four out of five employees say they intend to look for employment elsewhere," said Scott Ahlstrand, Right Management’s employee engagement leader. "Solutions to keeping the best talent on board all point to effective engagement that drives performance, satisfaction and loyalty. Employers must act now to engage top talent and prevent them from leaving for the competition."
