Are you looking for a new job?

Do you think about the grass being greener someplace else? Are you starting to check the help wanted or trade magazines for a new position? The economy is starting to improve and with it comes a new attitude for employment.

The fourth annual Deloitte Ethics & Workplace Survey, shows that 34% of employed Americans are going to be searching for a new job once they feel the economy has gotten better.

Why are so many people looking at leaving their current position? Loss of trust in the employer accounts for 48% of this group. Another 46% say that the lack of transparent communication from the company leaders will cause them to walk away at the end of the recession.

If you have a sense of trust in your employer and the leadership of your company then you are much less likely to be looking for a new job. The comfort zone of the employee is becoming a big issue, especially when the boss doesn't know his people are unhappy enough to leave.

The survey also found that 77% of executives surveyed felt that they were being supportive of work-life needs of employees. The employees who agreed were a little lower percentage of 72%.

Employees numbered 59% that felt that more is being demanded of them in the current business climate. Technology is given credit by 60% of employees as being what helps people to meet their professional and personal demands. Employers need to be sure that trust and flexibility is part of their workplace environment or they will face voluntary turnovers in staffing.
