Index: Job Changes Key to Career Growth

September 25 2012

More than one-in-three respondents (43 percent) to the global workforce index survey by Kelly Services Inc. (NASD: KELYA) said they believe changing jobs is more important than remaining with their existing employer when it comes to developing their skills and advancing their careers.

Other survey highlights include:

  • 63 percent said that if they did change jobs, they would be in a good position to negotiate a similar or better position.
  • 60 percent said experience with multiple employers is an asset in their career development.
  • 36 percent admitted that they actively look for new jobs, even when happy in their current ones.
  • Only 22 percent believe they will have the chance to progress or gain a promotion at their current employer in the next year.
  • Half of those surveyed believe that their current employer is not realizing their full potential.

The global workforce index survey is an annual look at opinions about work and the workplace from a generational viewpoint. Approximately 170,000 people in 30 countries participated in the survey, including about 20,000 in the United States.
