Fascinating Facts about Job Satisfaction and Motivation All Over the World

A new survey by LinkedIn and the Adler Group suggests that 72% of professionals are either somewhat or very satisfied with their jobs.  Nonetheless, this doesn’t stop 85% of these same employees being open to new opportunities.

In fact, across the 18,000 employees in 26 countries that were polled, 25% are actively looking, and another 15% are chatting with their close personal network about opportunities. A further 45% are open to an approach by a recruiter.

What would motivate you to explore other career options? Do your motivations fit with your peers?

Job title is not much of a motivator. Compensation, work-life balance and opportunities for advancement are more important.

But the top career motivators vary by country, age and sex. Millenials find compensation more important, while the over 40s care about work-life balance. Dutch and Japanese employees seek challenging work, while Danish and Indian employees are more interested in learning opportunities. Women care more about relationship with their manager than men.

What are your own career priorities? What might your employer realistically do to keep you from leaving? Is it worth a conversation with your boss or family to ensure you get the job satisfaction you really desire?
