With the state of the current economy this topic is highly premature, but as a recruiter who is out there speaking with employed people everyday about the limited number of jobs out there I can’t even begin to count the number of them that have gone into detail about how their employer-employee relationship has changed. While they have no other recourse but continue the status quo and keep there jobs, they are certainly of the mindset that as soon as things get better they are out the door. Now the situations that they reference most are the many decisions that companies have made over the last six months in an effort to save money, and they include everything from cuts in salary (5-20+%), reduction or elimination of 401K contributions and finally changes in health bennies or its cost structure.

Now I completely understand that companies have to do what is necessary to stay in business, but some of these moves have either been handled poorly or are simply not playing well with the employees to the point where they are all very interested in leaving. So as we begin to see the market improve over the next six months I think we will continue to see companies’ loose longtime employees who feel that their plates have been broken and simply want to start anew with another employer that they feel they can trust.
