Even Happy Employees Go Job-Hunting in January

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

Will You Stay?

Although more than half of the people we surveyed said they hope to leave their current jobs, many of them said they might change their minds if certain improvements are made.

Not surprisingly, most people---75 percent---said they want more money in the form of raises and/or bonuses. But clarification and peace of mind are also high up on the priority list, as 35 percent said they need their employers to set clearer goals, 33 percent are desperately seeking a better work/life balance and more time with their families and 27 percent of people would stay if they were allowed to work from home.

Asking for more money or other workplace perks isn't easy, but our podcasts are filled with experts who offer free salary tips and negotiation advice.
