Two years to ad­vance ca­reer

Irish Independent - Business Week - - Front Page -

EM­PLOY­EES need to spent two to three years in a role in or­der to ad­vance their ca­reers.

This is ac­cord­ing to al­most three-quar­ters of the 1,000 em­ploy­ees who took part in Peo­ple Source’s 2018 ‘Tip­ping Point’ sur­vey.

Mean­while al­most one in two em­ploy­ees would be will­ing to ap­ply for a job which they may not be qual­i­fied for in or­der to ad­vance their ca­reers, ac­cord­ing to the sur­vey.

The aim of the sur­vey was to dis­cover the ‘tip­ping points’ that in­flu­ence peo­ple’s day-to-day at­ti­tudes in work.

When in de­cid­ing to change roles, poor man­age­ment was cited as the main rea­son for peo­ple want­ing to leave a job.

Mean­while the re­port also found that 40pc of males are al­ways ac­tively look­ing for a new jobs, in com­par­i­son to one-third of fe­males.

In­ter­est­ingly, as the coun­try ap­proaches full em­ploy­ment, one in three peo­ple who re­sponded to the sur­vey felt that there should be a spe­cial tax rate to at­tract skilled work­ers into Ire­land from over­seas.

And two-thirds of re­spon­dents said Ire­land’s do­mes­tic tax rate neg­a­tively im­pacts the county’s abil­ity to bring skilled work­ers back home.

On the sub­ject of the ‘gig econ­omy’ where com­pa­nies tend to hire more free­lance or tem­po­rary staff in­stead of full-time work­ers, al­most two thirds of re­spon­dents did not feel it was a pos­i­tive di­rec­tion for Ire­land.

Es­tab­lished in 2015 and based in Dublin, Peo­ple Source is one of Ire­land’s new­est re­cruit­ment con­sul­tancy com­pa­nies.

The sur­vey was car­ried out in April this year.
