Looks like employees are feeling a little more confident about asking for more money this year — and a substantial number say they’ll quit if they don’t get a raise.
The fourth quarter Glassdoor survey, conducted online by Harris Poll, reveals that employees are feeling a little more confident about asking for more money this year – and a large number says they will quite if they don’t get a raise.
Employee confidence in the job market is at its highest in six years. According to the survey, more than two in five employees report expectations of a pay raise in the next 12 months. If employees do not receive that pay raise, more than one in three report they will look for a new job. Additionally, almost half (48%) of employees (including the self-employed) say they’re confident they can find a job matching their current experience and compensation levels in the next six months. The survey also showed that most employees, 62% of them, do not believe men and women are paid equally.
