If your organization's turnover rate hasn't picked up recently, it's only a matter of time. That's the message of a new Society for Human Resource Management survey that says 75 percent of all employees are currently looking for new employment opportunities. Among those, 35 percent say they're actively job searching, while 40 percent are passively searching.

The top three reasons they're looking to move: better compensation elsewhere (43 percent), better career opportunities (32 percent) and dissatisfaction with current job (22 percent).

With turnover and the economy heating up, the survey says more employers are beefing up their retention efforts, including better competitive merit increases, promotions, career-development opportunities and bonuses.
