Today is called Job Action Day for several reasons, but the primary issue at stake is job satisfaction. According to a study from the Society of Human Resources Management, almost 90 percent of Americans report being either partially or entirely satisfied with their current job. And while that number may seem incredibly high, an equally high number of Americans conceded that they were planning to look for employment elsewhere within a year. In other words, the consensus is that workplace satisfaction is higher than usual, but workers are still open to the idea of greener grass.
Those caught in professions that are up against massive change are understandably more eager to look elsewhere. According to the Job Action Day website:
The world of work is changing faster than ever. There are any number of reasons for recent economic shifts, but the bottom line is this: a number of industries that have thrived in the past—such as mining, retail, and transportation, for instance—now face an uncertain future. We believe that it’s better to be prepared for change than to be caught off guard. And for this year’s Job Action Day, we want to empower workers from industries that are losing jobs to use their transferable skills to find exciting new opportunities in related fields.
