Many Canadian workers thinking about changing jobs

VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – Another sign the recession is fading into memory. Many workers no longer feel the need to cling to their jobs like they supposedly did during the economic downturn.

A study by Ipsos Reid shows more than one quarter of Canadian workers are considering a change, sometime in the next six months.

Greg Leach with the company says workers are losing patience.  “I think people are saying, ‘Well, where’s the light at the end of the tunnel and where’s my reward for being patient?'”

Twenty-seven per cent are thinking about changing jobs.  The number is higher for managers, sales, and IT professionals.

The conclusion is that workplace morale is suffering, while some people are looking for change just for the sake of change.
