Oh, the regret...changing jobs

A new survey has shockingly revealed that more than half of those people who change jobs regret doing so, while one-in-four leave the new position within a month.

Fifty-four percent of respondents said they strongly regretted accepting a new job immediately after joining the organisation, according to a web survey carried out by insolvency firm Begbies Traynor and online directory UK Net Guide.

The survey revealed most companies prepare poorly for the arrival of new employees with almost two-thirds – 66% – left to their own devices during their first day of work, while almost half had no desk, and 67% had no email account set up.

Embarrassingly, 12% of employees were refused entry to work on the first day too.

Nick Hood, senior London partner at Begbies Traynor said: ‘If staff leave in the first few weeks of joining, the organisation has to meet more costs, both in time and money, in recruiting replacements.

‘It’s far simpler and more cost effective to make sure they are properly introduced in the first place.’
