Posted Thursday, January 16, 2014 7:18 pm

With drops in worker job satisfaction last year, more employees have plans to pursue other job opportunities in 2014.  Data from a national survey conducted by Harris Interactive for CareerBuilder shows that twenty-one percent of full-time employees plan to change jobs in 2014 up four points from seventeen percent last year.  Survey participants who are looking for new work indicated that they are dissatisfied with their jobs due to concerns over salary and feeling undervalued.  Factors that make employees more likely to seek alternate employment include overall dissatisfaction as well as dissatisfaction with opportunities that current positions provide regarding advancement, high stress, underutilization of skills, and poor manager performance.
