Among the priorities of the respondents the absence of prospects and the search for a better balance between private life and work.
Glickon, an Italian company specialized in People Experience and Analytics, presented the data of theObservatory on work that offer a cross-section on the motivations that lead people to change jobs. Why do you aving your job?
The reasons can be many, but with the pandemic we are seeing a change in the reasons behind the push to look for a new job. If the absence of prospects remains in first place(20.5%), but marks a significant decrease compared to the previous year’s figure (32.5%), unsatisfactory remuneration takes on less importance, falling from 14% to 4.3%. What then increasingly affects the decision to change jobs?
The balance between private life and work. This element, in fact, is gradually acquiring an increasing importance in the eyes of workers: if a year ago only 3.7% declared that a better work-life balance represented an important reason among those that lead to looking for a different job, today the percentage has risen to 7.2. This leap forward is to be found in the fact that with the pandemic working from home has become a constant, which has not always coincided with an improved organization and management of family and personal commitments. Finally, the security of the position held is an important stimulus to the search for a new job for only 4% of respondents. The main goal of those who choose to change is to find an organization that has a stimulating corporate culture (24.6%).
12.4% of workers aspire to find, with the new job, also a better work-life balance and 9.5% more attractive career prospects. Finally, 11% of the sample interviewed say that what makes working in a company attractive is that it knows how to offer a challenging work experience. People spend about 1/3 of their lives at work: in all about 90, 000 hours.
This data shows how important it can be to feel good in the workplace and end the day satisfied. Companies are increasingly aware that their economic results depend to a large extent on the quality of the experience they are able to offer to their customers, but even before that to their employees.
“Hybrid work, or whatever other definition you want to give it, is a very young system, the result of an instinctive move in reaction to the pandemic, so young that it still has to be generated, in most cases, by people who have not yet entered the world of work. After so many attempts we will understand that it is not the right conditions that generate a good work experience, but it is the people who have the power to live or not a good work experience” – comments Filippo Blacks, CEO and cofounder of Glickon. “Youcan design this new world in a sustainable way only with a new intelligence, a combination of technology and humanistic knowledge. Artificial intelligence, Natural Language Processing algorithms, Sentiment Analysis techniques, in short, everything that, through technology, seems to take us further away from reality and people paradoxically will be the most precious commodity to make us able to look at work starting from the simplest things, such as the personal stories of each of us».
