Listen up--some people are quitting
There could be openings. More people quit in Feb than were laid off or fired.
At the end of 2009, 60% of workers said they would quit if the economy got better.
This may mean they think it is.
Of course, this churn will cost companies in training and other costs.
Also, the overworking during the worst of the recession has led to burnout—people leave!
It costs half a salary to bring in a new person and train him or her.
Could the leavers be persuaded to stay? Sixty percent said no.
