Survey: Over 2/3’s of employees are motivated and satisfied with their jobs …

Yesterday, we posted a survey that reported half of all employees would tell friends and family not to come work from their employer.

I got curious and dug a little deeper …

=========

The American Psychological Association does an annual survey on Work & Well-being.

Here are some highlight snippets from their latest survey ….

=========

According to the APA survey,  about 2/3’s of employees are satisfied with their jobs.

===========

And, about 2/3’s of employees say that they are motivated to do their job.

==========

Further, 2/3’s of employees think that their employer’s treat them fairly.

But, the numbers fall slightly when it comes to work-life balance.

Less than 60% are satisfied with their work-life balance.

OK, we’re getting closer to the 50% who say “Don’t come here to work.”

So, let’s keep going.

=========

Only about half say that their company makes them feel valued.

==========

And, less than half think that their employer provides them with opportunities for growth & development, i.e. they don’t see a way to get ahead and move up.

==========

Only about half say that they and their employers share common values

==========

About half say that their employer is open and upfront with them ….

==========

And, less than 1/4 trust their employer.

Using converse logic, that means that about 75% do trust their employer.

===========

Summing up, according to the APA survey …

Motivation and job satisfaction are high …  and most employees trust their employer, even if they don’t always share common values.

But, employees want more work-life balance and opportunities for growth & development.

That’s not new news, right?

There’s always an opportunity to improve employee engagement.

But, it doesn’t look to me like things are going to hell in a hand basket, does it?
