According to a survey by staffing firm Robert Half, about 40 percent of Tampa professionals expect to begin a job search within the next year.

The driving reasons, the survey found, were to increase their wages (32 percent), seek a promotion (32 percent), get additional time off (12 percent) and find a new manager (12 percent). In a separate survey also conducted by Robert Half, 77 percent of Tampa senior managers surveyed were concerned about whether their companies would be able to keep valued employees.

"Message to employers: It's time to focus on retention," the survey said.
