The human resources website TNLT is reporting a “voluntary exodus” of burned out workers who stayed put through layoffs and the recession but are now confident enough to leave. This report follows statistics last year showing more than half of all currently employed workers planned to make a move once the economy improves.
This movement is good news for job seekers. Besides attesting to signs of economic recovery, it will lead to an increase in job openings and a chance for the out-of-work to get back to work. It is one more reason why this is a great time to bring new energy and optimism to the job search.
