Job change in New Zealand world’s highest
New Zealand has one of the highest job turnover rates but experts say this shows people are willing to take job risks in a recovering economy.
According to the Kelly Global Workforce Index, New Zealand had the fifth-highest number of people changing jobs in the past year out of 31 countries, with 55 per cent of Kiwis surveyed saying they had switched employers.
A further 30 per cent were also considering ditching their workplace and only 14 per cent were completely happy with their job.
Respondents cited opportunities for personal growth and advancement as the main reason for leaving their job – only 11 per cent had changed for better pay.
Another important factor was company culture and reputation, 30 per cent saying they would recommend working at a company to a friend if it ticked those boxes.
The survey, commissioned by recruitment agency Kelly Services, canvassed more than 120,000 people including 3500 New Zealanders.
