Is job-hopping still considered a negative thing or is it the new trend?

job-hopping

Are we still expected to collect long service awards in the workplace? Zanele Luvuno answers questions from callers.

Back in the day - if you were intent on committing career suicide, "job-hopping" was the sure way of doing it.

But, things have changed.

The job market has shifted and, millennials have given rise to the idea of switching jobs to make more money.

So, could it really be such a bad thing in the world of work? Eusebius McKaiser talks to Transcend Talent Management's Zanele Luvuno to find out if employees still work in companies for 50 years.

Definitely, not. You've got some industries where you still have people that work in same company for 30 years.

Zanele Luvuno, Managing Director at Transcend Talent Management

People don’t really stay in jobs for longer than (probably) two years.

Zanele Luvuno, Managing Director at Transcend Talent Management

It used to be that you really should stay in a job for a period of about five years...

Zanele Luvuno, Managing Director at Transcend Talent Management

The market is changing, people's needs are changing.

Zanele Luvuno, Managing Director at Transcend Talent Management

Whilst there are various (valid) reasons for switching roles, Luvuno says that it could also come down to something as simple as poor career choices and, bad judgement.

If you make one bad decision, I think it's acceptable but then when it's seen as a string of bad decisions then people start to question your ability.

Zanele Luvuno, Managing Director at Transcend Talent Management

She advises that employers work on shifting their mindsets when it comes to the era of the "gig economy."

We are in the era of the gig economy.

Zanele Luvuno, Managing Director at Transcend Talent Management

People want to gig... they want to do three or four different things that give them exposure.

Zanele Luvuno, Managing Director at Transcend Talent Management

Employees need to (also then) start to structure their work environment to allow people the opportunity to do that.
