A majority of employed adults, 52%, are content and not engaged in a job search right now, according to a survey by CareerBuilder.

On the other hand, 23% of Gen Z, 24% of millennials, and 14% of Gen X are actively seeking new jobs.

The survey also found on average, a quarter of employed adults have been at their company for three to five years. One in 10 have been at their current company for less than a year, 22% have worked for more than a year, and 20% for six to 10 years.

“With these new survey results, we see that one out of five employees have been at their company for six to 10 years, indicating that workers value loyalty and a healthy work culture,” CareerBuilder CMO Kristin Kelley said. “As employers, we strive to keep our teams motivated and happy. This new data helps inform and open the lines of communication so employers can meet folks where they are, providing an ideal environment that allows everyone to prioritize wellness, flexibility, and work-life balance.”

Additionally, 56% of employed adults said their work schedule attracts them the most in their current role, with 61% of women feeling the same, compared to 51% of men.

Forty-eight percent of the respondents consider their colleagues the most appealing factor at work, followed by fair pay, 46%; work-life balance, 43%; and health benefits, 34%.

Fifty-eight percent of Gen Z are attracted to their job because of colleagues and work friends. Overall, 52% of men are more likely to be drawn to their job due to fair pay, compared to 39% of women.

Benefits that employees are seeking outside their company’s current offerings:

  • 30% seek a four-day work week, and 28% hope to have their birthday off.
  • 24% seek mental health and wellness benefits.
  • 21% prefer to work remotely full time, while 16% would like a paid sabbatical.
  • 13% are interested in pet insurance, and 10% are seeking fertility or new baby benefits.

Perks related to work schedules supersede financial offerings, including signing bonuses, student loan repayment, childcare or daycare stipends, and tuition reimbursement.

The survey was conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of CareerBuilder.
