Staff refuse to tolerate glass ceiling at work
Staff who encounter a glass ceiling at work are more likely to look for a new job than discuss their concerns with the HR department.
Research from global recruitment consultancy Robert Walters found that almost three-quarters of staff would immediately start the search for a new job if promotion looked unlikely.
Just over 20% said they would not begin an immediate job search.
Almost 5,000 people were surveyed.
Susan Major, director of human resources recruitment at Robert Walters in the UK said: ‘it is an entirely natural reaction for employees to begin dipping their toe in the employment market when faced with a glass ceiling.
‘However, in my experience this is usually done in parallel with making tentative approaches to line management.’
