A new study conducted by CareerAddict.com revealed that progression is considered more important than pay, with an astonishingly high number of survey participants (82.39%) saying that a lack of progression would influence their decision to leave their jobs. Survey respondents were asked to rate different reasons that would affect their decision to quit based on a scale of importance. A lack of career advancement opportunities, followed by low pay and the absence of a salary raise, were the three main contributing factors to their decision to leave. Meanwhile, among those who had already quit their jobs, 35% also revealed they would consider returning if they were offered a better salary or a higher position. The study not only revealed invaluable insights regarding employee turnover, but it also uncovered disconcerting realities that are prevalent in today’s workplace: 53% of survey takers said they felt discriminated against by their superior, 61% of which were women. Meanwhile, 1 in 4 people said they felt discriminated against because of their gender, 76% of which were women.
