One in three workers ‘ready for change’

One in three UK workers would leave their existing job if they could, according to a recent study.

The research, carried out by professional services company PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), found that 33% of UK employees did not feel valued by their employers during the recession, and would leave for another job if they could.

But 23% of respondents who felt that they were appreciated by their employers said they would consider leaving, regardless.

Michael Rendell, partner and leader, HR services at PwC, said: “Workers’ ambitions to find new roles could be good news in terms of creating movement and opportunities in a rather stagnant labour market.”

He added: “Rather than losing their best people as individuals resolve to make changes to further their careers, organisations need to articulate the internal options available to top performers, and remind workers why they chose to work for their employer in the first place.”
