Despite the positive economic indicators many New Zealanders hesitant to re-enter the job market

Average staff turnover nationally remained relatively stable in 2014 with just a small decrease from 17.2% in 2013 to 16.3% in 2014 according to The 2014 New Zealand Staff Turnover Survey by Lawson Williams Consulting Group in association with the Human Resources Institute of New Zealand (HRINZ).

Involuntary turnover decreased from 4.1% in 2013 down to 3.5% in 2014, which indicates increased business confidence, and yet voluntary turnover also decreased from 13.3% in 2013 to 12.6% in 2014 which shows a reticence or reduction in confidence from employees when it comes to re-entering the employment marketplace.
