Employees across the globe have experienced unprecedented economic turmoil, and, as a result, are restless regarding future career goals. Many are unhappy in their jobs and are actively searching for new opportunities. Others are content with their current employment position but are seeking greater engagement and meaning from their positions.

These findings are part of the latest survey results from the Kelly Global Workforce Index, an annual survey conducted by Kelly Services.

Overall, less than half (44%) of the global workforce feels valued by their employer and two-thirds (66% intend to look for a new job with another organisation in the next year.

The survey finds that among the main workforce generations, Gen X (aged 31-48) are more likely to be thinking about resigning their current jobs than either Gen Y (19-30) or Baby Boomers (49-66).

The survey results also found when evaluating potential employers, the number one factor job seekers regard or consider is corporate brand/reputation (58%) followed by location (52%). In essence, the corporate brand is becoming the employment brand, and resonates strongly with candidates as they weigh their employment options, especially for skilled professional and technical employees.

Across the generational groups, the way that individuals weigh their job choices varies as people age. Personal fulfillment/work-life balance becomes progressively more important as people mature, and is the predominant consideration among Baby Boomers. But for Gen Y, when choosing to accept one job over another, the leading consideration is personal growth/advancement. Among all generations, personal fulfillment/work-life balance and personal growth/advancement both outweigh compensation and benefits when choosing one job over another.
