This study investigates the factors which affect the mobility of workers in the formal sector of Nairobi. It focuses on an empirical understanding of the underpinnings of job mobility; identifies and analyses economic, social, cultural, demographic characteristics that affect mobility of workers .. The probit method of analysis is used to estimate binary response function of job mobility. To support the major findings of this study we suggest policy actions such as commensurate remuneration regimes, reorganization of education curriculum to emphasis on entrepreneurial and professional courses, female empowerment in education and finance and establishment of safety nets to cushion laid off workers .
