Em­ploy­ees: three to five years is the most one should stick with one job

Baltic News Network - - News -

Ac­cord­ing to em­ploy­ees, the long­est pe­riod of time a per­son should stick with one job is three to five years, as con­cluded in a sur­vey per­formed by CV-On­line Latvia us­ing Al­gas.lv data­base. 39% of em­ploy­ees in Latvia, 46% in Lithua­nia and 53% in Es­to­nia no­tice cer­tain fi­nan­cial and non-fi­nan­cial ben­e­fits from stick­ing with the same em­ployer. On the other hand, around 30% of em­ploy­ees in Latvia say new col­leagues of­ten re­ceive bet­ter ben­e­fits. In spite of that, sur­vey re­sults show that em­ploy­ees who stay for longer than five years with the same em­ploy­ers are also more loyal to them.

‘Un­der the cur­rent labour mar­ket sit­u­a­tion, Or­ga­ni­za­tions should con­sider se­cur­ing mo­ti­va­tion and sat­is­fac­tion of their ex­ist­ing em­ploy­ees. It is pos­si­ble that at­trac­tion of new pro­fes­sion­als and en­sur­ing their loy­alty will turn out ex­pen­sive. Still, these are fac­tors that can keep ex­ist­ing em­ploy­ees in their place and help with their de­vel­op­ment and sat­is­fac­tion with their work en­vi­ron­ment. Every em­ployee should con­sider their pos­si­ble de­par­ture from their job very care­fully and think if there is re­ally noth­ing to dis­cuss and change, and if their ca­reer growth is truly over. It is also im­por­tant to re­mem­ber that of­ten change of jobs can cre­ate ob­sta­cles for fu­ture job of­fers,’ says CV-On­line Latvia Mar­ket­ing and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager Krista Roz­iņa.

The sur­vey was per­formed us­ing Pay­lab web­site, which works in Latvia as CV-On­line Latvia’s man­ager wage in­for­ma­tion data­base Al­gas.lv.
