Job Change Alert: Make Rapid Turnover Work For You

By: pmegan
Employers are learning the hard way! More and more organizations are acknowledging a critical fact . . . Finding ways to retain valuable employees must begin before an experienced and talented worker is entertaining an offer from someone else.

And things aren't getting any easier for employers. A recent Harris and Associates survey shows that more than 50 percent of workers expect to change jobs within the next five years!

Furthermore, rapid staff turnover is expected to escalate. That means that just when companies are devoting more time to finding new talent, they have to find ways to encourage current employees to stay.

Managers can no longer afford to take for granted the steady, productive employee who is a good, if unrecognized quality performer. Sadly, they have been provided very little by way of mentoring or appreciation. So, managers are contributing, often unwittingly, to the turnover.

The good news is that, if you are considering a job or career change you can make this dynamic work in your favor in two ways:

1. If 50% of your fellow employees are contemplating a job or career change in the next five years, so are 50% in other organizations. This spells opportunity for you.

2. You have added leverage to upgrade your job status both within your own organization as well as in a prospective new work environment.

The secret to using these changes effectively is to always know what your options are. For example, you can stay on top of the ever-changing job marketplace with RSS! Don't miss out on critical career news and innovative job search strategies. Stay informed! It's so easy to have immediate access to current trends and alerts. If you go to our website, simply click on RSS.

You know, your current job and future career advancement provides the fuel that drives your lifestyle. If you don't believe that, check out the sometimes catastrophic impact of losing your job.

So you want to nurture your job status and career growth like you would an investment. The escalation of staff turnover is another workforce dynamic that can work for you!
