Search for New Employment May Be Behind Increased Presenteeism

Although much of the recent literature has pointed to "reporting to work while ill" as the prime culprit in presenteeism, there are many indications that general dissatisfaction with the work situation may be a major contributor. Given the number of people who are looking for new employment, losses in productivity attributable to copy center time (printing new resumes) or online job search may be on the rise.

According to the 2004 U.S. Job Recovery and Retention Survey by the Society for Human Resource Management and CareerJournal.com. Thirty-eight percent of surveyed human resource (HR) professionals say they have noticed an increase in turnover since the beginning of 2004. It also finds that 75 percent of all employees are looking for new employment opportunities, and that top three reasons employees give are better compensation elsewhere (43%), better career opportunities (32%), and dissatisfaction with opportunities at current job (22%).
