Beweggründe und Determinanten zwischenbetrieblicher Mobilität: Die Schweiz in einer internationalen Perspektive (Motives and determinants of job-to-job mobility : Switzerland in an international perspective)
Abstract"The paper examines the magnitude, trend, motives and determinants of the job-to-job mobility of workers in Switzerland. This is done using both the job changes that have actually occurred and intended job changes. It is shown that the macroeconomic job-turnover rate increased in trend in the 1990s and currently stands at over 10% per year. Also in an international comparison Switzerland shows a potential job-turnover rate that is higher than average. Although the wage and its change really play a role in voluntary changes of employer, in particular subjective factors make a significant contribution to explaining future changes of job. Employees who have a high level of job satisfaction, who regard their own job as secure and who are proud of their firm are far less inclined to change their jobs. These statements apply to both men and women." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
