The turn of the year triggers the need for change in many minds. At no other time is the motivation for change higher. The resolutions for the coming year are also being made in the job. Whether acquiring greater specialist knowledge (65%), demanding more salary (40%), being promoted (23%), seeing work more loosely (48%) or putting more emphasis on private life (40%) - almost all employees in Germany has resolutions for the next job year. At the end of 2016, a representative survey by TSN Emnid, commissioned by the personnel service provider Adecco, asked which professional resolutions were important for the next year.

Berliners want to increase their knowledge, Schleswig-Holsteiners want more money

The state comparison shows great differences: Respondents from Schleswig-Holstein will look particularly clearly at the pay slip next year: 64% indicate that they will demand more salary in 2017. In contrast, only 12% of Bremeners and 39% of Bavaria want to get more wages next year. The Berliners want to attach particular importance to increasing their professional competence, which was less important to the Bremen team. Bremen are also at the bottom when it comes to making work easier in 2017. Mecklenburg-Vorpommern leads here with 72%.

Especially in Schleswig-Holstein employers want to be promoted (36%), in Thuringia (6%) and Bremen (3%) the wish is rather small. There are also big differences when it comes to putting private life in the foreground: Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania leads the state comparison with 61%. In Brandenburg, however, only 25%, in Bavaria 39%, want to focus on private life.

Generational differences

But not only the federal states, the generations also differ significantly in their professional intentions: Although in times of demographic change and digitization, the term "lifelong learning" determines the public discussion, only 33% of those over 60 want to continue their specialist knowledge enlarge. The figure is 71% for those aged 30 to 39, and 81% for those aged 14 to 29.

There is also a big difference when it comes to promotions: 38% of 14 to 29 year olds want to take the next step in their careers, but only 5% of those over 60. The situation is different when it comes to making work more relaxed in the future: 54% of those over 60 want to make their professional life more relaxed. In contrast, only 33% of 14 to 29 year olds have this resolution for 2017.

Survey methodology

Between November 19 and December 8, 2016, professionals in Germany were asked in 2017 what resolutions they have for their profession in 2017. The respondents were allowed to choose from several predefined answer options. Multiple answers were possible. If you are interested, the complete results of the survey, including the individual data of all federal states, can be requested from Adecco. (kj)
