Even Happy Employees Go Job-Hunting in January

Our Survey Results Show a New Year Means People Want New Jobs No Matter What

Maybe Money CAN Buy Happiness

Armed with the knowledge that so many workers are unhappy in their jobs, we wanted to find out why. So we asked them.

Not surprisingly, money (or a lack thereof) topped the list of complaints. Of the people we surveyed, 67 percent said they want to leave their current position because of an insufficient salary.

Additionally, it looks like end-of-the-year raises and bonuses play a big part in that decision, as 29 percent of people said the lack of a raise or bonus during the holidays directly contributed to their decision to look for a new job.
