CA­REER pro­gres­sion is the top pri­or­ity for most ad­min­is­tra­tive pro­fes­sion­als and em­ploy­ers who do not recog­nise this risk los­ing cru­cial staff mem­bers, new re­search shows.

Robert Half In­ter­na­tional’s Of­ficeTeam divi­sion sur­vey found 59 per cent of ad­min work­ers are ac­tively seek­ing or con­sid­er­ing look­ing for a new job.

More than half of them, 54 per cent, are do­ing so be­cause they want bet­ter ca­reer de­vel­op­ment, 25 per cent want in­creased re­spon­si­bil­ity and 21 per cent say they are bored.

As­so­ciate di­rec­tor Stephen Lang­ham­mer says the re­search shows ad­min­is­tra­tive staff are no dif­fer­ent from other em­ploy­ees in reg­u­larly eval­u­at­ing their ca­reers.
