Gartner data says employees are more confident in seeking new jobs while discretionary effort towards work drastically drops

Research company Gartner presented the latest Global Talent Monitor report which shows that employees’ confidence when in business conditions rose from an index of 53 in the fourth quarter of 2016 up to 54.9 in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Amid the increase in employees’ confidence, more tend to seek jobs out of their organization while their discretionary effort or the willingness to go beyond their duty drastically dropped from 15.8% to 3.1%.

Brian Kropp, HR practice leader at Gartner said that in order to keep their employees, organizations must be able to improve their internal job perceptions.

He said: “Push career opportunities to employees based on tier interests and aspirations, and target passive internal candidates by building opportunities before they become dissatisfied and look elsewhere.”

He added, mentioning how to increase efforts of employees: “Organizations need to better understand the motivations and morale of their employees, which can be gauged by purposefully collecting feedback from the staff. Increase the effort of employees who plan to remain in their positions by effectively responding to their critical feedback in engagement surveys.”

The Global Talent Monitor survey was participated by more than 22,000 employees in 40 countries.
