Employee loyalty is at a three-year low, but many employers are precariously unaware of the morale meltdown, according to the 9th annual Study ofTrend.
The study, which was commissioned by MetLife, says slightly more than one in three employees hope to find a new job in the next 12 months.
And, according to a survey by Glassdoor.com, more than four in 10 workers believe it’s “likely” they’ll find a job that matches their experience and salary in the next six months.
The bottom line: Though many people have felt lucky to simply have a job throughout the recession, the economic uptick may lead them to search out greener pastures. For top performers who remain, this is a prime time to seek a merit-based pay raise.
