Over a Third of Global Professionals May Dive Back into Job market after Summer
New research from Regus reveals that global professionals may quit their jobs after the summer vacation due to overwork, bosses that do not communicate the company’s goals and lack of promotion. 45% of respondents would not stick around with a company lacking promotion despite good work results. For 41% of respondents, lack of communication and involvement by top management was the top ‘get me out of here’ factor and another 37% would cut loose if the company has no vision. Jessy Takashi Kure, Vice President North Asia, comments: “As workers pack up their swim-suits and towels after the holidays, they are more likely to dwell on the pros and cons of the job that is waiting for them at home. With reports indicating that one of the effects of the recovery is that many more employees have started quitting their jobs and looking around for new ones, businesses that are not providing all the trimmings may be heading for a brain-drain of their best talent.“Stress caused by overwork has escalated during the past recession with people working harder and longer to make sure they can pay the mortgage. Medicash reports that one in ten Britons feels stressed even before starting the work day. Bonuses and job perks were cut back to weather the storm, but as the economy picks up employees will be flocking to businesses that promise them better conditions and not necessarily the biggest wage.”Other high-stress factors are overwork (26%) and lack of belief in colleagues’ competence (21%) as well as rude colleagues (21%). 20% of respondents would also leave if the commuting distance to work is too long or their boss took credit for their work. Further dissatisfaction that could easily morph into a ‘last drop’ factors were lack of administrative support (19%), shabby premises/workplace (13%) and lack of flexible working practices between home and office (13%). The survey also asked workers what companies could do to avoid a brain-drain of their best talents. Pay rise was top of global workers’ wish-lists (49%), second was private medical insurance provided by the company (32%) and almost a third (29%) called for ability to flex working hours and pension increase.Top 5 reasons for global professionals to quit their job this yearLack of promotion despite good work results: 45%
