If their British counterparts are any indication, learning professionals in the U.S. may see their positions as very volatile.
Blue Eskimo’s annual work and salary survey shows that 62.38% of learning professionals in the U.K. will be looking for a new job in 2013. That’s up from 58.85% last year.
“As you’d expect,” says Nick Bate, director at Blue Eskimo, “quite a few people — around a quarter — are after more money.Well, almost 60% of people didn’t get a rise this year — and many of those didn’t get a rise last year, either.
”Yet 24.92% want a more interesting role,16.29% want better career prospects,and 12.38% want a better work-life balance.
“People are still broadly happy in this industry,”says Bate.“Two-thirds say that they are happy.[But] around a third want more money and better benefits and almost 20% want to work for a company with a better strategy.”
There’s been a shift in the type of work which people want to do, too. I.T. training is now one of the least appealing roles to move into, while soft skills training is one of the most.
