Over the next year, 80 percent of employees expect to stay with their organizations, a jump from 65 percent in 2011, according to Talent 2020, a new survey by Deloitte Consulting in partnership with Forbes Insights.

Another 46 percent of respondents say they're less likely to switch employers because in the past year they've changed jobs at 9 percent, received promotions at 22 percent or have accepted new positions with their employers at 15 percent. Despite this, 31 percent of respondents report not feeling satisfied with their jobs.
