Why do you change jobs?

According to a report published today, The Number 1 reason for changing jobs is the desire to 'increase pay and benefits'

This is a reversal from last year when 'improving job satisfaction' was cited as the top reason for employees wanting to change jobs

The latest Employee Outlook survey published by CIPD reveals that job satisfaction has been relegated to second place behind pay and benefits, as the rising cost of living bites.

The survey finds that 36% of employees report their standard of living has worsened over the previous 6 months, compared with 29% saying this was the case last summer.
