Unhappy workers ready to leave job: survey

Unhappy Australian workers are preparing to leave their jobs once the economy improves, according to a new survey.

A survey of 280 job seekers conducted by recruitment firm Aequalis Consulting has found that 45 percent of job seekers lacked trust in senior management, 62 percent were experiencing lower morale and only 22 percent said they would stay put. The results indicate workers are becoming increasingly unhappy in their position, and are waiting for the economy to improve before they jump ship.

According to Aequalis director Simon Boulton, employers were too quick to drop staff when the going got tough, and are now at risk of losing their top performers.

“Human capital is key to a business’s ability to grow yet it’s clear a significant number of existing staff are not happy,” he said.
