Employee survey research: The Insync Retention Review 2010


Suppressed demand for new jobs hit employers

Insync has released The Insync Retention Review. The 2010 report, based on 1,548 employee survey responses, predicts a surge in staff turnover as the job market picks up.

The Insync Retention Review reveals the reasons employees leave their employer. Interestingly, fewer departing employees are now indicating a “lack of job satisfaction” as their number one reason for leaving, selected by 10% of employees in 2009 compared to 14% in 2007. However, “work stress” and “job security” are increasingly common. There is also a decline in “pay and conditions” as a driving influence in one’s decision to leave.

James Garriock, Insync Executive Director said: “Employees aren’t happier, they just haven’t been leaving due to dissatisfaction.”
