The annual Investors In People 'Job Exodus Survey' has revealed that 47% of UK employees plan to move jobs at some point this year. Almost 20% of those who responded to the survey are already taking steps to find a new role.
Of those planning to move, 49% blamed poor management for their decision.
The latest figures are actually an improvement on the previous Job Exodus survey, which found that 59% of UK employees planned to leave their job in 2017.
Commenting on the study, IIP CEO Paul Devoy said, “With 49% of workers citing poor management as the main reason they’re considering looking for a new job, management strategies must evolve to meet the demands of employees if organisations are to retain staff.”
The IIP survey also provided yet more evidence that flexible working is becoming increasingly valued by employees and prospective new hires. Almost 1 in 3 (31%) would prefer a more flexible approach to working – such as remote working - to a 3% pay rise.
