More U.S. workers plan to change jobs in 2014, according to a survey by CareerBuilder. It found that 21 % of full-time employees plan to change jobs in 2014, up from 17% last year. The percent of workers planning to change jobs this year is the highest in the post-recession era.
The survey also found fewer workers are satisfied with their jobs — falling to 59% this year from 66% last year.
“Offering frequent recognition, merit bonuses, training programs and clearly defined career paths are important ways to show workers what they mean to the company,” said Rosemary Haefner, vice president of human resources for CareerBuilder. “In general, however, when more workers change jobs, it’s usually a sign the labor market is warming up.”
The CareerBuilder survey included 3,008 employed U.S workers.
