An improving economy may be all it takes for more than half of Australians to begin their search for a new job.
That’s according to the ELMO Employee Sentiment Report – a nationwide survey commissioned by ELMO Software to gain an insight into the actions, attitudes and behaviours of Australian workers. The report provides a quarterly analysis of the prevailing sentiment within the workforce to track changes in perceived job security and the employment landscape.
The ELMO Employee Sentiment report found that 51 per cent of working Australians indicated they were holding off on searching for a new job until the economy improved. However, with recent data showing the economy is improving, workers may finally be preparing to “jump ship”.
It comes at a difficult time for employers as a third (34%) of Australian workers reported feeling at burn-out breaking point, while almost a quarter (22%) reported feeling overwhelmed by their workload.
