More Canadians leaving their jobs after just 2 years
Canadians may have some commitment issues when it comes to their jobs, according
to a new poll by employment website Workopolis. The online survey found that
about half (51 per cent) of those polled said they had been in the same job for
less than two years, while 30 per cent said they had held one job for more than
four years. That compared with survey results from 1990-2000 where just 16 per
cent reported holding that same job for less than two years, and fully 60 per
cent who said they had been in the same job for more than four years.
career goals have changed in the last 20 years. Today's workers appear more
willing to "job hop" to find the perfect position rather than stick it
30 years in the same place. (Source
