Employees Can’t Get No Satisfaction?

Filed under: General HR Buzz — Tags: 10:00 am

According to a Conference Board study, Americans are increasingly dissatisfied with their jobs.  The survey found that only 45% are happy in their positions.  That’s the lowest number in the 22 years that the Board has been doing the study.  By contrast, in 1987, a majority of workers (61%) were satisfied at work.  Employees under 25 had the highest level of dissatisfaction.  Other findings included:

  • 56% of employees like their co-workers
  • 51% were satisfied with their bosses
  • 56% were satisfied with their commute
  • 51% find their jobs to be interesting

According to a CareerBuilder survey, 19% of employees plan to change jobs in 2010 and another 9% intend to do so in 2011.  Hopefully these people will have somewhere to jump to.  It’s suggested that these people may be motivated to seek work elsewhere because of pay and benefits cuts in recent years.
