Two years to advance career
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.
