According to recent research by Quarsh one in three employees are actively looking for a new role and a further 54 per cent of employees would move roles if they were approached.
Results from the report Finders Keepers? Exploring How to Source, Hire and Retain the Best Talent, based on the feedback from 500 white collar UK employees revealed that 10 per cent of employees are actively searching for a new opportunity, a further 20 per cent will be looking for a new role within the next three months.
The survey also found that those most likely to be considering moving jobs are staff from the Generation Y demographic, with 12 per cent indicating that they are actively seeking a new job. 15 per cent of those that earn £20,000 were also seeking new roles. 54 per cent of employees also started that they are not actively seeking a new job, but would be keen to move if they were approached.
Research found that respondents who are not currently looking for a new job how prospective employers could most suitably contact them out-of-the-blue. The responses revealed that 88 per cent would prefer to to be approached via a personal email.
These findings underline what a fantastic opportunity employers have at the moment to win some of the best talent in the market, but only if they approach candidates in the right way.”
