October 13, 2011 13:00 by Ann Pace

(From PRWEB) -- Employee turnover is expected to increase worldwide during the next five years, according to a global survey by Right Management, the talent and career management experts within ManpowerGroup.

More than 2,000 internal and external recruiters, human resource executives and hiring managers from 17 countries representing more than 20 industry sectors participated in the Right Management survey.

Half the survey respondents globally expect higher turnover, said Bram Lowsky, Executive Vice President Americas at Right Management. "About a third foresees no change, and a minority a decrease, all of which points to greater turnover than organizations have been used to dealing with in the past decade."

Expectations of Higher Turnover in Next Five Years (Percentage anticipating slight or significant increase):
North America =59%
Asia Pacific = 58%
Europe = 41%
Global average = 49%

Employee Engagement Hits New Lows as Workers Feel Stuck

October 11, 2011 12:30 by Ann Pace

(From PRWEB) -- Modern Survey's recent study of employee engagement levels in the U.S. workforce has unveiled the somewhat disturbing reality that even while employee engagement is sinking to new lows only 21% of workers report that they are seeking new employment opportunities.

Conducted in September 2011, the most recent iteration of Modern Survey's bi-annual study found that 70% of employees are now either disengaged or under engaged at their job – a record high number since Modern Survey began tracking these numbers in 2007 before the recession started. Additionally, the number of fully engaged employees has dropped to a record low of just 8%. Compared to one year ago when 15% of the workforce was fully engaged, the most recent data demonstrates a profound deterioration in the number of workers who are fully committed to their work and to their organization.

Shockingly, while 70% of workers are disengaged or under engaged, approximately one fifth of workers reported that they are currently looking for a new job at a different organization – a percentage which is remarkably consistent across nearly all captured demographics, including job level, pay basis (salaried vs. hourly) and company size.
