New job seekers are likely to quit sooner rather than later after deciding a company is not the "right fit" for them, a survey showed on Sunday.
The rate for new job seekers quitting within a month of being hired was 36.2 percent in 2015, compared with 32.2 percent in 2013, according to 104 Job Bank, one of Taiwan's leading online recruitment agencies.
The tendency for this group to quit was even more pronounced in the case of small- and medium-sized companies, the survey revealed.
The job bank explained that new job seekers are paying more attention to whether companies are willing to make improvements and deal with weaknesses instead of merely focusing on bonuses, employee welfare and corporate vision.
In an employment market that has seen increased demand for labor relative to supply in recent years, the job bank said new job seekers are in a strong position when it comes to looking for better opportunities. The latest survey was conducted between Jan. 26 and March 15, 2016, focusing on businesses that employ a minimum of five people.
A total of 1,440 valid samples were collected, with a confidence level of 95 percent and a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.
