PRLog - March 22, 2011 - SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Studies show that employees will be searching for and considering new job opportunities at an alarming rate in 2011 and Gallup Poll #'s show that increasing pay and/or benefits is not enough to keep them loyal. So, the question is, what will?

During this time when the economy seems to be recovering, many organizations are especially concerned about their employees seeking other work. Did you know that according to a recent survey conducted by Harris Interactive, despite high job satisfaction, 74% of employed full-time and part-time workers would consider a new job opportunity?
Looking at these numbers it becomes clear that supporting internal career advancement is of utmost importance, right? This can in turn help the 20% of employees dissatisfied with their current role move into something more appropriate as well. In addition, the 22% dissatisfied with their pay or benefits can work to move internally to a higher paying position. This is related to the flexible lattice idea I explored in my March 2nd blog entry, “The Corporate Ladder is Collapsing!” (http://upmo.com/
So, it seems that supporting internal career development in an employee-focused way has the potential to positively impact 98% of those employees leaving for a variety of reasons and effectively make them more loyal. Wow, that’s pretty huge, isn’t it? With the economy recovering, it is more important than ever for HR professionals to engage employees in internal career development before they find a new job externally or get poached by hungry recruiters.
