UK staff 'on the hunt' for new roles'
A rising level of job dissatisfaction in the UK is causing more workers to look at new roles and consider the possibility of changing careers, the latest research has suggested.
Data commissioned by performance consultancy River Marketing shows that some companies may be failing to inspire their staff and make them feel valued, as only a fifth of employees believe their firm cares about its workforce.
In total, 37 per cent of respondents said they rarely or never received appropriate or sufficient recognition at work, but 18 per cent of UK employees said the do feel optimistic about their own future with their current employer.
Phil Dunk, River Marketing's managing director, commented: "The issue will be apparent when the job market recovers, by which time it may be too late to hold on to dedicated, talented people who are hungry for a new challenge."
He explained that companies aiming to keep hold off staff need to place emphasis on developing strong internal communications, so that employees feel closer to the top of the organisation understand why difficult decisions are being made.
