How loyal are your employees? Probably more so than you’d expect, according to a study commissioned by us towards the end of 2017.
Growing skills shortages have arguably handed employees the upper-hand when it comes to negotiating their next role.
However, our research found that workers are likely to stay with an employer for an average of 4.5 years. Meanwhile, a third say they usually stay in one role for more than six years.
Those findings were based on responses from 1000+ employees, both full-time and part-time.
The main reason given for employer loyalty was enjoyment of their job (47%) while 31% ranked progression as a key aspect of retention.
In reaction to the study, CEO Simon Conington told Recruitment International:
“Employers will be reassured to see that for the most part, employees are not jumping from job to job in a matter of months as some headlines would suggest.”
