More than 80 percent of U.S. construction professionals would consider leaving their current role, and 65 percent would take a pay cut or demotion in exchange for their ideal job opportunity. That according to constructiondive.com based on a survey by the staff recruiting firm, Hays US.
Fewer than half (46%) of those surveyed said they were satisfied with their current position, the article noted.
According to Hays’ data, culture was the reason most cited by employees for leaving their roles. Though salary was important to those surveyed, culture, benefits and career growth outweighed salary as a motivator for professionals staying in or leaving their current positions.
