Workers hope to seek new challenges elsewhere

Fifteen
per cent of the working population want to change their job this year,
according to a new survey.

The
survey, by Pitman Training, shows the figure rises to 24 per cent for those
aged between 16 and 44.

More
than half the of the 1,000 people questioned (53 per cent) said they are not
completely satisfied with their current job, with common work gripes including
prospects, salary and work environment, and a lack of training and development.

James
O’Brien, managing director of Pitman Training, said: "January is always a
time when people reconsider their work situation as part of their New Year
resolutions.

"The
cost to businesses of both losing and replacing staff can be enormous,
involving agency fees, advertising and hours of administration time."
