It Jobs : Three in five workers plan to change jobs in 2015

Correct preparation can help interviewees manage the inevitable stress

The Hays Ireland guide to salary and recruiting trends for 2015 shows that the main drivers of employee mobility are concern over pay in their existing job, a perceived lack of opportunities or career progression, and the lack of challenge.

The guide shows that 71pc of employers have increased their headcount in the last year, while 76pc plan to increase their headcount in 2015. In the construction sector, 81pc of businesses increased their employee numbers.

Hays Ireland managing director Richard Eardley said that in an increasingly competitive employment market spurred on by economic growth, businesses must consider emphasising the overall “work-life package” over traditional benefits in order to attract candidates.

“Ireland’s recovering economy has created multiple opportunities for candidates. The increased availability of jobs means employees now demand more than just a decent working environment and private health insurance from employers,” Mr Eardley said.

“Now, employees are increasingly prioritising jobs with perks that cater to a better work-life balance, like additional holiday days, in addition to an attractive salary.”

The report polled over 2,900 employers and employees in Ireland.
