Restless staff?

Opinion

Restless staff?

According to jobs website, Monster, 30 per cent of workers spend more than three hours a week looking for a job whilst at work, 16 per cent look for more than five hours a week and a staggering 7 per cent look for ten hours or more a week. That's a lot of time wasted.

Of this time, a good number are browsing for jobs whilst others are using the time to update their CVs. What makes this more problematic for employers is the fact that the internet makes this all so much more discrete - gone are the days of looking at print advertisements whilst sat at a desk.

What does this mean for employers? Well they need to engage staff more and give them jobs where they don't want to look elsewhere for something better.
