NAB Behavioural Insights – The Changing Workplace (Q2 2023)

Job switching & intentions, employee satisfaction, working from home & perceptions of collaboration & productivity.

A sizeable share of the adult working population continues to change jobs, with 2 in 3 Australians who made the change in the past year, moving to a different organisation. And, a large number of Australians are thinking about leaving their current job.

With labour shortages continuing in a number of sectors, there is an opportunity for employers to better understand why workers are leaving and increase retention.

The impact of the pandemic on work continues with Australians on average, still spending one-third of their work week at home (and ideally would like to spend a lot more). There remains considerable debate as to whether remote workers are less productive. Overall, 1 in 4 Australians do not believe they are as productive at home as in the workplace, and almost 1 in 5 are unsure. But there are big variations by industry.
