Now that we know more than two-thirds of employees are unhappy, let’s see how that affects their decision regarding whether or not to find a new job.
Last year when we asked this question, 56% of all respondents said they planned to actively look for a new job in 2012. But with another year of workplace discontent under their belts, our survey shows that number has risen to 77% of employees who will be looking for greener pastures in 2013.
Contrary to popular belief, younger workers are the least likely to search for a new job. Only 69% of workers ages 18-25 plan to job hunt this year, compared to 81% of workers between 40-50 -- the age group most likely to look for a different position.
