A resourceful place

The findings from the 2012 Aflac WorkForces Report found that almost half of the nation’s best employees are hoping to move-on to new jobs this year. The report is an online survey of nearly 1,900 benefits decision-makers and more than 6,100 U.S. workers.

The Aflac study found that those employees who are extremely or very likely to look for a new job in 2012 say the following qualities describe them fairly or extremely well:

  • Hard worker – 90 percent
  • High achiever at work – 79 percent
  • Highly educated – 73 percent
  • Ambitious; someone who strives to get ahead – 64 percent

The reasons for this desire to leave for top talent is not well defined, but some excusses were indicated.

  • Eighty-four percent of workers say benefits are at least somewhat important in the decision to leave a current employer, and 50 percent say they’re very or extremely influential.
  • 35 percent of workers who don’t believe their company has a reputation as a great place to work say they are extremely likely to leave in the next 12 months.
  • One-third of workers who don’t believe retaining employees is an important priority for their employer say they are likely to leave.
  • Workers who said they are stressed out are nearly twice as likely (43 percent vs. 25 percent) to leave their job compared to workers who are not stressed. 
  • Another 28 percent of employees who are extremely likely to leave their job in the next 12 months say they don’t have peace of mind.
