Your Employees Are Probably Job Hunting Right Now

It’s Tuesday, which means there’s a good chance some of your employees already have looked for another job this week. Data provided to Businessweek.com from job sites Indeed.com, Glassdoor.com, and Simplyhired.com show that Mondays and Tuesdays are peak times for job hunting. Now might be a good time for worried managers to treat the office to pizza.

Workers aren’t confining job searches to their off hours. On Simplyhired.com, U.S. searches peak on Mondays around 11 a.m. Weekly Web searches on Indeed.com also peak on Mondays around 11 a.m., and the daily peak on other weekdays tends to be around that time as well. Based on IP addresses, there’s plenty of traffic from office computers, says Chris Hyams, vice president of product at Indeed.
