Kelly Services News Release (04/17/12)
Employees across the globe have experienced unprecedented economic turmoil, and, as a result, are restless regarding future career goals. Many are unhappy in their jobs and are actively searching for new opportunities. Others are content with their current employment position but are seeking greater engagement and meaning from their positions.
These findings are part of the latest survey results from the Kelly Global Workforce Index, an annual survey conducted by Kelly Services. Overall, only 44% of the global work force feels valued by their employer and 66% intend to look for a new job with another organization in the next year. The survey finds that among the main work force generations, Gen X (aged 31-48) are more likely to be thinking about resigning their current jobs than either Gen Y (19-30) or Baby Boomers (49-66).
