January and February are said to be the most popular months for job changes but a recent study has found a solution to make good workers stay.

A study on employee turnover has shown people are more likely to quit because their work is unfulfilling, even if they have good relationships with management. Launched by Facebook, the study also shows that those workers who use their strengths more often and feel they are gaining valuable career experience are less likely to leave for another job.

Lead researcher of global HR think-tank Reventure, Dr Lindsay McMillan, said this latest research joins mounting evidence that employees are looking for greater purpose and meaning at work. Earlier research by Reventure revealed that 72 per cent of Australian workers were looking for purpose and meaning in work.
