Major reason for job change is still the salary
Why are so many people thinking about changing their job? After two years, Jobswype is asking its users this question again. The goal of this poll is to find out whether and how the criteria have changed. Criteria to choose upon are the following: salary, bad career opportunities, bad working climate, work life balance and underchallenge. Unsurprisingly, in ten of the polled countries the salary is the leading reason for people to change their jobs. 45 per cent of people in the United Kingdom would be willing to change their job for more money. This Jobswype poll shows as well: In the west of Europe the working climate is more important than the salary.

Jobswype European comparison 2016-2017: Gender Pay Gap is still pronounced for European employees
On the occasion of the international women's day, the job search engine Jobswype polled its users de novo. A disappointing result for all the people who thought that equality at work should be given in 2017. Almost two thirds of European female employees earn less money than their male colleagues, where qualifications are equivalent. These were the findings of the poll conducted in February by the job search engine Jobswype. Even though the United Kingdom is the country where with 55 % the highest percentage of people answered “yes” to the question if women and men are being paid equally but still there is enough place for improvement.
