Seventy-two percent of Australians are looking for purpose and meaning in work, according to research by global think-tank Reventure. Forty-nine percent are likely to look for a new job this year.

Another study by Facebook shows people quit their jobs because they do not find meaning and fulfilment in the work – even if they enjoy good relationship with their managers.

Meanwhile, those who do stay are employees able to use their strengths and who feel they are gaining valuable experience.

These findings served as basis for a Reventure’s “a future that works” national workplace renewal campaign. The aim is to encourage employees, specifically top talent, to stay in their jobs.
