OurEmployment Market Monitor for Q2 2017shows that 1/3 of employees feel more stressed after holidays than before they left. The expectation to be in constant communication means burnout is a very real threat for a large number of workers.
The report also shows that jobseekers are more optimistic than in previous reports. The Monitor has traditionally shown an ongoing, overall gap in the perception of the employment market by both employers and jobseekers. Large numbers of both groups have traditionally seen the market in favour of the other.
Interestingly, 60% of employees who stated they were happy in their job, still look at job ads.Peter Cosgrove, Director, Cpl Resources said:
'New opportunities still appeal to contented workers, so it is important to provide employees with enough incentives and benefits to keep them. Companies often invest a lot of time and money in hiring new candidates, but these figures show that it is worth focusing on managing the talent already in the company'.
