New job dissatisfaction stats are a wakeup call for employers


CLARKONOMICS: Do you like your job? Do you love it? Or do you hate it? And more importantly, what are you going to do about it?

Nearly 80 percent of people would like to leave their current job and get another one, according to new numbers from FPC — a national executive search firm — that I read about in The Orange County Register.

Employers stretched us with more duties during the recession as they reduced head count. As a result, the workers who were left behind reached burn out. Employers need to be mindful of this! The FPC survey shows that nearly one in three respondents said they want to leave because their company wasn’t good to employees during the recession.

That is a serious wakeup call for employers.

As an employer, you were in survival mode just trying to keep your doors open during the recession. But I don’t have to tell you how expensive turnover is and how much it costs to hire and train new workers. So make the conditions better for your employees!

You don’t want people working for you who are burned out. Improve the conditions and I promise that as the economy improves, your business will do so much better.
