Job opportunities in the market may have become fewer, but that is not stopping 85% of the total workforce from eyeing greener pastures. Most employees are either actively looking for a job or open to talking to recruiters about relevant opportunities, says an annual exit survey by LinkedIn.
The number of employees looking to exit jobs went up by five% since last year. The so-called employees who claim to be ‘satisfied’ with their jobs too feature in the list of those searching for jobs, says the professional networking website.
India should be worried the most by the trend, since it has the one of the highest attrition rates. “India experiences 17% employee turnover annually, 12.6% of which is preventable,” said LinkedIn, in a press release.
