The Workmonitor’s Mobility Index, which tracks employee confidence and captures the likelihood of an employee changing jobs within the next 6 months, provides a comprehensive understanding of sentiments and trends in the job market. The index slightly increased over the last two quarters.
The Workmonitor also tracks actual job changes. The report shows that job changes increased overall in the last quarter, with the highest number in India and the lowest in Luxembourg. The appetite for job change remains highest in India and lowest in Turkey. India also holds the highest level of job satisfaction, while Japan shows the lowest.
The Randstad Workmonitor is published four times a year, making both local and global trends in mobility visible over time. The study is conducted online among employees aged 18-65, working a minimum of 24 hours a week in a paid job (not self-employed). Minimum sample size is 400 interviews per country. The Dynata panel is used for sampling purposes.
