WorkL reveals a 103% increase in job searches in January 2023 compared to January 2022 as the need for better pay to counter the cost of living continues to bite employees.
The data, taken from the UK’s largest live recruitment database, WorkL’s Jobs Marketplace, lists only organisations that have a positive employee engagement score of over 60%, highlights that the Great Resignation, which was a mainstay of 2022, is continuing as the digital platform can also reveal that the current Flight Risk of employees is at an all-time of high of 32.6%, an increase of over 6% compared to 2022. It’s even higher in the Retail and Technology sector right now too.
The Founder of WorkL, Lord Mark Price, comments on the findings; “Firstly there is no one reason why an employee would voluntarily be looking for another role. There are in fact four: being fairly paid, having a good relationship with their manager, being developed and enjoying their job. If an individual measures poorly against all of these criteria then there is more than an 80% probability they will leave within nine months. The current Flight Risk figure is worrying news for businesses who face the prospect of greater staff turnover this year than last and in a jobs market where labour is tight. The Government should be doing everything possible to ease the recruitment crisis otherwise we will see continued inflationary pay pressures.”
WorkL’s dedicated Jobs Marketplace platform aims to support individuals in finding the best job in the right organisation for them, all for free. Millions of jobs are available to search in the UK, Australia, NZ, USA, Canada and Ireland.
WorkL is unique in that its job vacancies are directly linked to data on how employees feel about working at that organisation and individuals can find happy jobs specifically based on demographics such as age, gender, ethnicity, disability and more.
