NEW ZEALAND – EMPLOYERS MORE ACCEPTING OF JOB HOPPERS: ROBERT HALF
(May.27, 2019, /staffingindustry.com/)The majority, or 74%, of New Zealand hiring managers would be more willing to hire a candidate who has a history of job hopping, according to research from Robert Half.
A job hopper is defined as someone who has made an average of six job changes within a 10-year period.
Robert Half found that job hopping is overwhelmingly more prevalent among New Zealand’s millennials (born between 1977 and 1995) as 79% New Zealand hiring managers think millennial-aged workers are job hoppers. This compares to 58% who think the country’s Generation X (born between 1965 and 1976). workers are job hoppers and just over one in three (36%) who consider baby boomers (born between 1946 and 1964) to be job hoppers.
Robert Half stated that while many employment changes in a short time span can give hiring managers cause for concern, the majority, or 97%, of New Zealand employers acknowledge there are also advantages linked to changing jobs frequently.
The positive consequences of job hopping for employees, as identified by New Zealand hiring managers, include: the chance to learn more skills (44%), faster career progression (39%), more experience across different industries (38%), higher salary progression (38%) and resilience to change (34%).
Meanwhile, the negative consequences of job hoppers, as identified by hiring managers, are: lack of job security (41%), missing out on professional development (37%), increased stress (35%), less influence on company strategies (35%) and missing out on being part of a team (34%).
Megan Alexander, General Manager of Robert Half New Zealand, commented, “The widespread stigma around job hopping is fading as New Zealand employers show signs of increasing acceptance of candidates who change jobs frequently, particularly in a skills-short market where the availability of talent is scarce. As millennials continue to dominate the workforce, the generational shift in attitudes towards job hopping is changing in their favour especially.”
However, Alexander warned that employers should still be cautious of any red flags when considering job hoppers for a vacant role.
