Most of Your Workers Want a Job Somewhere Else
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Are companies starting to get more aggressive to retain top talent?
That would be something of a departure. They had all the leverage in the world from 2008-13, when unemployment was high and most employees put off looking for a better career landing spot.
That's not the case now.
A study from CareerBuilder says career professionals are starting to get itchy in their current posts: 77% of full-time employed workers are open to or looking for new jobs, according to the study.According to Robert Half Legal, the industry is in the midst of a burgeoning "war for talent" in which legal firms "are much more likely to extend a counteroffer to a valued employee" who says he or she is leaving the firm. Half says 28% of legal firms surveyed said they were much more likely to make a counteroffer to keep a key employee in 2014, compared with 13% last year. The sweeteners law firms are using include stronger compensation (55%), flexible work schedules (56%) and increased training programs for employees (67%), Half says.
