A vast majority of employees surveyed plan to pursue new job opportunities in 2014, according to a poll by Right Management, the talent and career management experts within ManpowerGroup.

About 83 percent of the nearly 900 workers who participated in the online poll say they intend to actively seek a new position in the New Year. According to the poll, only 5 percent of employees intend to stay in their current position, while 9 percent indicate they may look for new opportunities in 2014 and are networking for the same.

Right Management surveyed 871 employees in the US and Canada via an online poll that ran from October 16 to November 15, 2013. "These numbers should signal a wake-up call for top management, when four out of five employees say they intend to look for employment elsewhere," Right Management's global practice leader for employee engagement Scott Ahlstrand said.

Ahlstrand further noted that "solutions to keeping the best talent on board all point to effective engagement that drives performance, satisfaction and loyalty. Employers must act now to engage top talent and prevent them from leaving for the competition."

According to Right Management, to stay competitive in times of economic uncertainty, employers should implement strategic engagement programmes that are aligned with overall workforce strategies. Engagement, loyalty and job satisfaction should be top concerns for employers who want to keep their best talent," Ahlstrand said, adding that high employee dissatisfaction has a ripple effect that can hurt the bottom line, disrupt productivity and damage morale.

"Successful companies cultivate and retain top talent by building loyalty through engagement that connects employees' work contributions to concrete business outcomes," Ahlstrand added.
