A Kelly report on job-hopping: South African & Global perspectives of the new ‘normal’ in the modern workplace
The global phenomenon of job-hopping - moving from one job to another in a short period of time - is quickly becoming the new ‘normal’ in the modern workplace. This assertion is supported by documented world trends as well as findings from a recent survey conducted by a leading South African staffing and recruitment company, Kelly.
In this report, Kelly discusses the phenomenon of job-hopping, highlighting its causes, prevalence and implications in major global economies and across industries. The report further examines the notion of “the job-hopping millennial” as well as the distinctions in differences in job-hopping by gender, concluding that job-hopping is potentially not confined to specific demographics but is rather becoming a ‘new normal’ across South Africa – and the global economy as a whole. An important factor considered in this regard is that of increasing competition for “top talent”, a growing concern for business leaders as well as a potential factor fuelling the job-hopping trend.
