According to a study conducted by pollster and market researcher Ipsos, 52% of Hungarian employees would leave their present jobs without a second thought upon being offered 20% higher salaries elsewhere.
The poll conducted with a sample that reflects the actual composition of the labor market found that the majority of workers are proud of their current jobs, they are willing to discuss them with their environment and they also think highly of the relationships they have with their colleagues.
In particular, college graduates and those directly before retirement are loyal to their employers. However, a tempting salary at another place is more than likely to overrule these arguments.
The researchers said the younger the person is, the more likely the move to another employer for even a smaller, 10% tweak in pay. (Napi Gazdaság)
