August 12, 2019

Over the next 12 months, 43% of professionals plan to look for a new job, according to survey data released by Robert Half International Inc. (NYSE: RHI) on Thursday.

What would entice workers to stay? Money topped the list with 43% saying more money would get them to stay, according to the survey results. And 20% would stay for more time off/benefits, 19% would stay if promoted, and 8% would stay if they had a new boss. However, for 10%, nothing would get them to stay.

Cities with the highest percentage of workers planning to look for a new job included Sacramento, California; Miami; Austin, Texas; and Denver.

On the other hand, senior managers were asked about what retentions strategies they were using. Those most commonly cited included increasing communication with staff, improving employee recognition programs and offering professional development.

The surveys took place in April and included more than 2,800 workers in office environments in 28 major US cities and more than 2,800 senior managers at companies with 20 or more employees.
