According to a survey report released recently, nearly two-thirds of Australian employees are looking for new job opportunities, even for many industries, new job opportunities are becoming less and less.
A survey of more than 4600 employees by recruitment agency Hudson found that about 64% of Australian employees are actively or passively looking for new jobs.
Most people looking for a new job want a higher salary, while others are looking for a more interesting position and an organization that can make them happy.
However, the Australian job market has continued to tighten. The latest data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) showed that the unemployment rate reached 12% in December last year. Some economists predict that the unemployment rate will soar to 5.8% by the end of 2014.
The Hudson survey shows that seven out of ten Australian employers have adopted a large-scale internal reform plan in the past 12 months to improve company efficiency and cut expenses in a challenging market environment. .
At the same time, the survey also found that nearly 46% of employees said that they worked longer than a year ago. Mark Steyen, President of Hudson's Asia Pacific Region, said that relatively low levels of employee satisfaction are a problem faced by employers. He said: “Many employees need to work longer and harder, but at the same time they feel that their current positions are better. There is no guarantee, so they are looking for new opportunities."
"Enterprises may face a triple cost situation: the cost of idle labor, the cost of employee turnover, and the loss of key talent."
