Who is Most Likely to Change Jobs at Your Company?

As the economy and job market heats up, the last thing you want is key people leaving your company.

To help us identify who might be thinking along the lines of So long, farewell, Auf wiedersehen, goodbye, here’s a handy guide from our friends at CareerBuilder.

8 most likely to jump ship:

  1. Career-less, 52% of workers feel like they just have a job and not a career. Just trading hours for dollars is a recipe for being outsourced by either lower paid workers or a robot.
  2. Underemployed, 39% of workers don’t think their time or skills are used enough. Here’s help: 5 Steps to Stop Wasting Time.
  3. Undertrained, 22% of workers feel dissatisfied with their training or learning opportunities at work. Many workplaces don’t seem to have a structured training program in place or it’s simply poor. Is your employee training program working?
  4. Overlooked, 23% of workers feel overlooked for a promotion. We’ve recently come out of a recession where there were few promotions, now is the time to ask for one. Just make sure you don’t make these mistakes when asking for a promotion.
  5. Immobile, 26% of workers see no opportunities for career advancement. You could always consider upping sticks completely.
  6. Underpaid, 41% of workers didn’t see a pay increase in 2014. In real terms, that means their pay package is coming down. The lord helps he who helps himself, so here are 10 Tricks to Getting a Higher Salary.
