Research Shows Nearly Half of UK’s Workforce will be Looking for New Jobs in 2016


According to a Jobs Exodus Trends 2016 Report by Investors in People, 49% of the UK workforce will be looking for new jobs in 2016.

The report reveals that one in five employees across the country are complaining of high workloads (19%), nearly a quarter are concerned by a lack of career progression (23%) and over a quarter are unhappy with their levels of pay (27%), prompting a potential mass exodus.

Moreover, nearly a third of employees say they are miserable in their jobs – due to a combination of poor management (43%) and not feeling valued (39%). The third reason was unsatisfactory salary (38%). However, the report shows that getting a payrise would not solve the problem of being badly managed or feeling undervalued.
