Hunting for a New Job While at Work

Forget online shopping while at work. You need to be more concerned that your employees are surfing the web for a new job. In a survey from global staffing firm Accountemps, 78 percent of workers say they would feel at least somewhat comfortable looking for a new job while with their present company. More than six in 10 respondents (64 percent) indicated that they’d likely conduct search activities from work.

The survey revealed that professionals ages 18 to 34 are the most open to conducting job searches at work (72 percent), compared to those ages 35 to 54 (63 percent) and 55 and older (46 percent). In addition, the research showed that men are more likely to conduct job searches at work (72 percent) than women (55 percent). For more information, visit
