Research carried out by CareerStructure.com suggests that over 58% of all employees contemplating the idea of changing employers are unhappy with their current salary and are looking for better pay. Additionally, the report also suggested that 60% of workers in the industry are unhappy with their current employee benefits, with 59% believing they would have better promotion prospects elsewhere.

A better pay package was the main driver for people looking to move, with close to 63% of employees asked quoting this as the thing they were looking to improve in a new role. The next biggest factor was job security at 57%.

Given the nature of the findings published in the aforementioned report, British companies involved in the construction segment should seriously consider the implementation of a very solid and reliable time and attendance and access control system, designed specifically to help them keep tabs on their workers’ activity and also integrate the workers’ CSCS cards.
