This report begins by elaborating upon the different factors that appear to influence the degree to which people change employers. It then formulates a number of hypotheses regarding the influence of biographical characteristics, country characteristics, previous job mobility history, job characteristics, job satisfaction, attitudes towards job mobility and previous geographic mobility history. It then examines whether the hypotheses can be accepted, or should be rejected, on the basis of the data. Finally, some recommendations are made regarding policies of job mobility.
