There was an interesting study that came out recently around this, but focused on the different generations. Millenials seem to stay in the workforce for an average of 2.2 - 2.8 years only, compared to other generations.

It depends a lot on career stage. In early stages people move more. Mid-late it’s 5 or more years. However in very senior roles it’s very mixed. Some only 1-2 (those who are not successful/Peter Principal/ or 4-8 years very successful)
