According to a new report, 21% of full-time employees in the U.S. plan to change jobs in 2014, the largest amount in the post-recession era. This is up from 17% in 2013.
Those workers satisfied with their jobs fell to 59% from 66% and 18% are dissatisfied, up from 15% last year.
“When more workers change jobs it’s usually a sign the labor market is warming up,” said Rosemary Haefner of CareerBuilder, which authored the report. “During the recession and in its aftermath fewer people voluntarily left jobs because the chances of finding a new or better one were low compared to a healthier economic cycle.”
The national survey was conducted online by Harris Interactive from November 6 to December 2, 2013, and included a representative sample of 3,008 full-time, private sector employees across industries and company sizes in the United States.
