There's a myriad of reasons behind the trend
Over half of Canadians are looking to make a full-blown career change this year – that’s according to new data from Indeed. Released earlier this week, Indeed’s market report found that while 46% of Canadian workers are considering switching jobs this year, 52% want to leave their current field for pastures new. So, why are people looking to jump ship? Well, according to the survey, 75% of employees say the pandemic has forced them to re-evaluate their options, 72% said they fear a lack of career progression in their current role, and 73% want great flexibility. However, the number one driver was found to be money – with 85% of workers craving a higher wage.
