When we spoke to some 14,000 manufacturing workers across the globe about their attitudes at work, we were pleased to learn that 58% of them reported being happy in their current jobs. We were surprised to learn, however, that 54% of those workers who were happy in their current jobs were still looking elsewhere for better opportunities.

What are they looking for? This info graphic shows that:

1. The majority of workers (56%) believe that changing employers is the best way to develop new skills and grow in their careers.

2. Just 24% say that poor salary and benefits would be the main reason to leave their jobs.
