Only 28% of US workers love their current job and would not leave for any reason; on the flip side, 14% do plan to leave their current job in the next 12 months, according to research by Yoh, a Philadelphia-based staffing firm. However, salary is a driver of turnover for those who would leave — whether in the next year or a longer timeframe.

Yoh’s research found that 14% of employed US adults believe they will need to look for a job in the next three years to get the raise they feel they deserve. In addition, 11% have been unsatisfied with recent raises and would consider another job because of it.

The research also found that 26% would leave their current job in the next 12 months only if they received a higher salary and/or better benefits.

Opportunities to work on more exciting projects and get a new boss were factors in encouraging employees to move on, but pay is also a concern even in these cases. Only 7% of employed Americans would leave their current job for one with more exciting projects if the pay remained the same. In addition, only 6% would leave their current job to work for a new boss if they received the same pay.

This survey was conducted online by The Harris Poll on behalf of Yoh from Aug. 29 to Aug. 31 and included 1,175 employed adults.

Ads for AI jobs have surged, according to a study by Citi. Meanwhile, Kelly Services Inc. (NASDAQ: KELYA, KELYB) rolled out a platform for robotic process automation jobs, and Candidate.fyi announced a $1.3 million funding round. Lastly, a CEO has claimed the end of “copy-paste” jobs.

Citi on AI job ads

The number of artificial intelligence-related job advertisements has risen fivefold since 2015, though the jobs are concentrated in certain areas, according to a report released Oct. 2 by Citi, the London School of Economics, and the Oxford Martin School.

The research also found the number of “tech-AI” jobs advertised has grown ninefold globally. Tech-AI jobs are positions that require hard skills to “run, train, and test” AI models.

Separately, the number of “broad-AI” jobs has grown more than elevenfold globally. Broad-AI jobs require an understanding of AI technologies but not the hard skills found in tech-AI jobs.

The supply of these hard-to-find professionals is also skewed across the US, according to the report. California has almost a third of the country’s total.

“With some states having more than 10 job ads per AI professional, wage implications are also important, making the quest for talent a global endeavor that builds on remote and hybrid arrangements,” Pantelis Koutroumpis, director of the Programme on Technological and Economic Change at the Oxford Martin School, said in a press release.

Kelly Services Inc.

Kelly Services Inc. rolled out Kelly Arc, an online recruitment platform focused on AI jobs. It aims to combine matching technology and personalized services. Employers post jobs at no charge but must pay a fee if they hire a candidate.

The platform went live three weeks ago and is focused on robotic process automation, the company confirmed with SIA.

Kellys’ RPA platform was officially announced today.


Candidate.fyi recently closed a $1.3 million pre-seed funding round, co-founder and CEO Kyle Connors announced in a LinkedIn post.

The company’s platform offers a candidate portal for candidates to receive information on their journey, pulse surveys to collect feedback from job candidates, the ability for job candidates to book meetings online and create profiles, and an upcoming scheduling feature.

Candidate.fyi is backed by SuperAngel.Fund and the founders of Yext, JBC, and Tropic along with another industry executive, including the former chief human resources officer at Disney, the company reported.

‘Copy-paste’ jobs are gone, CEO says

An executive who replaced 90% of his support staff with a chatbot said “copy-paste” jobs are a thing of the past, Business Insider reported. “That job is gone. 100 percent,” Suumit Shah, CEO of India-based Duukan said in a quote referring to customer service workers who largely copy-paste responses. However, not everybody shares Shah’s enthusiasm for replacing workers, according to Business Insider.
