Twenty-two percent of workers are planning to change jobs in 2017

Twenty-two percent of workers are planning to change jobs in 2017, according to a survey conducted online by Harris Poll on behalf of CareerBuilder, compared to 21 percent last year. These numbers are higher among younger workers, with 35 percent of workers ages 18 to 34 expecting to change jobs in 2017, compared to 30 percent last year. This compares to 15 percent of workers ages 35 and older. The survey found that 35 percent of workers are regularly searching for new job opportunities even though they're currently employed – a one-point increase from last year (34 percent). Besides finding a new job, the top New Year's resolutions workers say they're making for the office this year include: save more of my pay (49 percent); be less stressed (38 percent); get a raise or promotion (30 percent); eat healthier at work (28 percent); and learn something new (26 percent).
