Employees in Romania Want to Change Jobs, Earn More in 2023



According to a new eJobs survey, 2022 was a relatively stable year in terms of job changes in Romania, as 68.5% of respondents made no move in this sense, Romania-insider reports.

However, asked what they wanted most from 2023, the most common answer was to find another job (23.4%).

A higher salary is also on the employees' wish list for 2023, the same source said. However, respondents would also want to work long-term from home, be promoted, find a job because they are currently unemployed, or open their own businesses.

Fewer than 10% said they have no reason to be optimistic about next year. Meanwhile, 43.9% of respondents said they fear the impact of a possible economic crisis in 2023. About 15.5% think that their income could decrease, and 14.4% consider that it will be more difficult to find a job than in 2022.

For this reason, at this moment, even if they are no longer satisfied with their job, 82% of respondents are more willing to be patient with their current job. However, 23.4% of respondents have no fears about the new year.

The survey was conducted in October and November on a sample of 1,400 respondents.
