More than a third (37 per cent) of workers are hoping to change jobs in 2015, new research shows.
A study by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) has found a significant increase in potential turnover from 2014, as only 19 per cent planned to change roles at the same time last year.
As well as this, 31 per cent are unsure if they need to search for a new role, with 59 per cent seeking more development opportunities in their role in comparison to 56 per cent who are looking for a higher salary.
Some 25 per cent of workers are planning to leave their current job because they feel underappreciated by their manager, while 30 per cent admit better management would tempt them into taking a new position.
As well as this, 27 per cent of respondents are searching for more training and development.
The ILM also found that 31 per cent of employees said they want to spend more time on things they enjoy away from the office.
Only 18 per cent of respondents to the 2015 survey said opportunities for flexible working was a priority for them, whereas three per cent are searching for better parental leave options.
Charles Elvin, ILM chief executive, said: “With an improving economy and more fruitful job market, it is important that employers realise that it’s likely they will have to work harder to keep their talented employees.
“This means prioritising managing the talent pipeline within the organisation to make sure staff have opportunities to develop and progress.”
With many workers now looking for a better work/life balance, it is important companies address this with more options for their staff, or they could end up losing them to alternatives.
