Are 40% of Your Staff Looking to Jump Ship?


In our June 2023 edition of The Leading Edge, you, as readers, were invited to participate in the then active Leadership Employment and Direction (L.E.A.D.) Survey. To those who did respond, we THANK YOU.

The survey explored a number of current workplace issues post-COVID. The results were quite AMAZING. In fact, more than AMAZING, they could be quite DISTURBING for those of you who currently employ people.

This edition of The Leading Edge includes certain information extracted from that survey which we believe will be extremely valuable to all leaders and managers in organisations. The first is an article about the new post-COVID working models “Living the Post-COVID Life”. However, the other MUST-READ article “The major challenges facing organisation in 2023” is the one that grabbed our attention with responses to:

  • What are the biggest challenges organisations are currently facing in 2023? – and
  • Identifying whether employees intend staying with their current organisation, or are they looking to leave/move on?

The DISTURBING statistics are:

  • 43% of all employees identified that they are currently actively looking to change roles, and
  • 32% have actually applied for another position, external to their current organisation, in the last 6 months.

I would urge all leaders and managers to read this article. Especially considering that the No.1 and No.3 challenges organisations are facing currently are:

  • Attracting sufficient talented people and
  • Retaining sufficient talented people
