Workers resolve to change jobs in 2003

Fifteen per cent of the working population want to change their job this
year.

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

More than half of the 1,000 people questioned said they are not completely
satisfied with their current job. Common gripes include disappointing
prospects, pay and working environments, and a lack of training and
development.

James O’Brien, managing director of Pitman Training, said: "The cost to
businesses of both losing and replacing staff can be enormous, involving agency
fees, advertising and hours of administration time."
