You’ve seen all the research that says your top performers are looking to jump ship. Here’s what they think you’re up to.
Almost half of employers think their boss is looking for greener pastures. That’s according to a reason study by Right Management, which surveyed almost 800 U.S. workers.
Here’s the breakdown on how people responded when asked, “Do you think your boss is looking for a new job?”:
- Yes, definitely (27%)
- Yes, probably (21%)
- No (40%), and
- Don’t know (12%).
Experts warn job-seeking supervisors to be as discrete as possible in their search. Reason: If workers know you’re looking to leave, it can be nearly impossible to keep them engaged and productive.
