The research, commissioned by River Marketing, suggests that some employers may be failing to inspire their staff and make them feel valued, with only 21 per cent of employees believing their firm cares about its workforce.
Overall, 37 per cent of respondents said they rarely or never received appropriate or sufficient recognition at work, though 18 per cent of UK employees feel optimistic about their own future with their present employer.
Phil Dunk, River Marketing's managing director, said the figures show that many people are on the hunt for new jobs, or may be in the very near future.
"The issue will be apparent when the job market recovers, by which time it may be too late to hold on to dedicated, talented people who are hungry for a new challenge," he added.
Organisations looking to keep hold of workers need to place emphasis on developing strong internal communications so that employees feel closer to the top of the organisation, understand why difficult decisions are being made and realise the importance of their individual contribution to the business, he added.
