My grandfather worked in the same bank job from when he left school until he retired, but no-one expects to do that anymore. But what factors do you think might drive you to switch employers or career paths altogether?

Why people expect to switch jobs was one of the questions asked in the Kelly Services Global Workforce Index, which we looked at last week when discussing how important your education is to your career prospects. More than half said they expected to make a change in the next five years. The most common reason was needing better work-life balance (30 per cent), followed by changing interests (28 per cent) and the need to earn more (20 per cent). Where do you sit on that spectrum?
As always, we’re open to further nuances and discussion in the comments.
