Executive mobility rising despite recession

24 July 2009

Three-quarters of employed executives would still be prepared to consider other available positions.

That is according to the career management specialist BlueSteps, which has published its Executive Mobility Survey disclosing that 75 per cent of board-level directors are open to the possibility of a change in employment.

In addition, the report discovered that the most important contributing factor to executives deciding to leave their current organisations is poor company values, Recruiter reported.

These figures were recorded despite the market conditions created by the global economic downturn, which has led to a number of executives turning to interim management positions.

Della Giles, director of, suggested that executive mobility was increasing in many industries.

She told the online news provider: "This openness toward new opportunities during a difficult and unstable economic climate indicates that executives realise the importance of taking career management into their own hands."
