The main reason why Romanians change their jobs

One of the areas that has undergone the most transformations amid the pandemic has been recruitment. With a constantly changing labor market in terms of opportunities, work methods and recruitment processes, candidates are also developing new mobility trends.

Thus, a study conducted by D&D Research at the request of BestJobs, on the behavior of candidates and the evolution of the labor market, shows that the main reason why Romanians change jobs, as 61% of participants say, is to get a higher salary.

Also regarding job change, 80.5% of candidates looking for new opportunities choose job sites as the main source of options.

When it comes to employee mobility in the labor market, the reasons are different depending on the level of specialization. Thus, for the white and blue collar categories, the main reason that determines the job change is the salary. Secondly, employees in these categories choose to leave a company when dissatisfaction with the relationship with colleagues or superiors arises.

Instead, employees in the gold collar category choose to make a change in their professional career when there are differences between their vision and personal values ​​and those of the company, first of all, but also when they feel the need for professional development and the company cannot offer them. challenges.

“We notice some differences of opinion between the categories of employees, depending on their level of specialization – blue collar, white collar or gold collar – but most Romanians indicate the salary as the main criterion for changing jobs and most of them would like to know salary at the earliest stage of the recruitment process. Many Romanian companies have already taken several steps towards a transparency of salaries published in the ads posted on online recruitment platforms. Employers who already use this measure have the benefit of attracting from the very beginning only those candidates who are willing to occupy that position “, says Dan Petre, Business Developer D&D Research.

When evaluating job sites, Romanians look especially at the number of jobs available in the city where they live (64.5%), the number of jobs in the field of interest (61.8%), the clarity and detailing the announcements (60%) and the number of jobs for the training level (59.5%).

Almost half of Romanians have noticed that the level of work has increased while wages have stagnated.

Study participants note how the pandemic has brought major changes to the labor market, the most important of which is the ability to work from anywhere, which frees people from the worry of commuting and the need to find a job near home.

Also regarding the effects of the pandemic, 43.9% of the participants in the study notice how the level of work has increased, but the remuneration has remained the same.

The job offer is considered varied enough, especially by employees in the white and gold collar categories. They also consider that there is a good match between the employment criteria and their specializations, at the opposite pole from the blue collar, which considers that the requirements of employers are difficult to achieve.

In addition, 71.6% of participants note that the job offer is much better in some areas, but 57% find it difficult to find a job. Moreover, only 31.9% consider the salaries offered to be attractive.

The study also shows that young people, especially graduates with higher education, do not easily find a job according to their education or salary expectations, despite the many offers available.

The study was conducted through an online questionnaire, on a nationally representative sample of 1,058 people.
