Seven out of 10 of the 1,000 workers surveyed by gift card company One4All said their productivity dropped when they decided to leave their job, while two-fifths said their productivity dropped by more than 30pc.

Feeling valued by an employer is what keeps us engaged most as a workforce, according to 58pc of respondents. When choosing a new employer, around half of workers said a positive reputation for treating staff well and engaging with them was most important.

Younger workers – aged between 18 and 24 – are most likely to want to leave work because they feel they are not appreciated, with some 31pc leaving for that reason. This compares with an average of 23pc amongst all age groups.
