79% Say It Will Be Their Choice to Leave Current Job

Tuesday, June 04, 2013

A plurality of workers plan on staying with their current company for at least five years, but when they do leave, most say it will be on their terms.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 37% of Employed Adults intend to work for their current employer for more than five years, down from 40% in March and the lowest since November 2012. Twenty-one percent (21%) plan on staying at their current job for one to five years, up from 14% in March and the highest since July. Just seven percent (7%) intend to stay with their current employer for less than a year, but 35% are not sure.
