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.’
