The New Year is nat­u­rally a time when we re­flect on our achieve­ments, and where we want to go next. A sur­vey in early 2016 es­ti­mated that nearly half of UK work­ers said they would look for a new job this time last year, while a fifth of them were al­ready search­ing for a new op­por­tu­nity. The rea­sons peo­ple are hun­gry for a change in their ca­reer is be­cause 43 per cent feel poorly man­aged and 39 per cent do not feel val­ued. Pay is an­other rea­son; say 38 per cent of peo­ple of the 2,000 peo­ple who took part in the poll at the end of 2015 by In­vestor Peo­ple. So be­fore you leap into ac­tion, think about why you feel this way. Take time to un­der­stand ex­actly what you want to change: your job, the com­pany, or your whole ca­reer path? Pause to re­flect, con­sider and plan and you’ll reap the ben­e­fits.

Look be­fore you
