Vault Poll: Most Employees Planning to Find New Jobs in Recovery

leave a comment »

A Vault poll finds one very good reason for the average job seeker to be optimistic and the average executive to fret: a vast majority of workers expressed a desire to change positions as the economy recovers—as many as 90 percent.

Granted, not all of those people are so fed up at work that they’re looking to get out immediately—only 17 percent suggested that they would move regardless of the economy, while double that number would only jump ship for a better job.

Those results in full:

Even taking into account the tendency of online poll takers to overstate the degree to which they’re prepared to act on their current circumstances, the results still suggest that there’s a significant amount of job churn to come as the economy rights itself. Assuming, of course, that it does right itself—and that companies start hiring with all that cash they’ve been stockpiling of late.
