Bloomberg reports Wednesday that the number of job openings in the US rose in July by 178,000 to 3.04 million.

This follows last week's report that companies added 67,000 jobs in August, above consensus forecasts, following a 107,000 increase in July.

Last year, 13 percent of chief financial officers changed jobs. Although this was down from 18 percent the prior year, Deloitte's CFO Programs predicts CFO turnover will rise again this year.

The ramifications of turnover are huge. Tom Bonney, founder and managing director of CMF Associates, which offers temporary CEO, COO and controllership services, estimates that when a CFO leaves, efficiency in the finance department is automatically cut in half and exposure to risk increases.

The median absence rate in 2009 averaged 0.7 percent, falling beneath the 2008 low of 0.9 percent of scheduled worker days per month.

Observers of the workplace have been predicting that, as soon as employment picks up, employees are going to run for the exit sign. Now, a new study seems to underscore that forecast.

But, the real question is, just how imminent is that impending stampede?

According to a survey of 900 employees conducted by Right Management, a talent management consulting firm, turnover is sure to skyrocket next year. That's because a majority of workers are unhappy with their current jobs an [...] Mon, 16 Nov 2009 23:00:00 +0100 turnover engagement employment
