There are more jobs in the economy than there are people looking for work.
That's according to LinkedIn Ireland Head Sharon McCooey, who was speaking as a new survey found nearly three-in-five Irish professionals are considering a new job this year.
Despite economic uncertainty, 59% are considering changing positions in 2023 - with Gen Z leading the trend at 71%.
Demand for higher wages is the biggest motivator for those looking for new opportunities.
Ms McCooey told The Pat Kenny Show the economy is in a good place.
"All the way through 2022, there were more employers looking for people than there were people looking for jobs," she said.
"So, the labour market is very tight right now.
"Our labour market will tell you right now that there are more jobs out there than there are people looking... and that is positive year-over-year".
Future of remote working
She said remote working is something that is still being worked out.
"We trust our employees to do their best work wherever they decide, and I think we're still on a journey," she said.
"I'd say it will be two to five years before we actually get into a real rhythm of where we really understand how flexibility, hybrid, remote will [work].
"Our employees work from home, they work remotely and they sometimes work from another country.
"So, we have all of those different options in play."
She said talk of 'quiet quitting' - where people don't take work too seriously - may not be as large as people think.
"A lot of the research we found is that Gen Z - although we've heard a lot about quiet quitting - they're actually working longer hours, and not taking as many of the flexible work options,” she said.
"So, Gen Z; sometimes we hear one thing about them, and they themselves are doing something different."
It comes as Microsoft, LinkedIn's parent company, is reportedly looking to cut 5% of its 220,000 global workforce.
Ms McCooey said the reports are "all rumour."
"I read the same article you read - I can't comment on a rumour," she added.
