More employees are thinking of a 'job change' within a year? Kaspersky's report discuss this career change issue

03/14/2021 12:44:47 PM

About 35 percent of employees are thinking of a job change within the next 12 months. 

These were the initial findings in Kaspersky's Securing the Future of Work report, with the two biggest drivers that people stated for this career change are both natural and understandable under the circumstances. 

Despite the more prevalence of uncertainties in the job market, people remained ambitious. While almost every second person would prefer to remain in their current position (48%), many employees still feel emboldened to reconfigure their workdays to fit better around their personal lives. Amid lockdown and remote working, they have also had more time to reflect on their future careers, upskill or learn something new.

Whichever direction they choose, the biggest motivator for them to try a new job is to achieve a better salary (49%). Meanwhile, the second most frequent reason cited is creating a better work-life balance, motivating 41% of respondents. The pandemic revealed the joy of spending more time at home with the family, as well as pursuing personal interests and hobbies. Employees may want to keep this opportunity unlocked.

After salary and personal comfort, looking for a role that is worthwhile and more meaningful is the third most important reason given (35%). It might be that the events of 2020 allowed employees to rethink their current work and realize the value of their time and what they want to spend it on.
“By rethinking their desires and capabilities, people will create a new working reality. Either changing jobs or staying in their current roles, they will strive to maintain the benefits of remote work and more comfortable settings. But to achieve this, employees need to apply the appropriate attitude, learn to be flexible, and work smarter. And of course, they need to organize their working environment and take responsibility for its reliability and security. After all, this can even become a competitive advantage in employers’ eyes,” said Sergey Martsynkyan, Head of B2B Product Marketing at Kaspersky.
To discover what the future of work will look like and how people fit into it, Kaspersky brings its new adventure video game Own Your Future to everyone who wants to give a try on playing through one working day, for it depicts the habits and decisions that will help employees to own their future.
