WHAT EM­PLOY­EES SAY

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

A na­tion­wide sur­vey of 2,000 U.S. work­ers re­veals they’re feel­ing bet­ter about their jobs than they have in years. So says The Con­fer­ence Board, which con­ducted the poll. It found that 54% of work­ers are sat­is­fied with their em­ploy­ment — up 3 per­cent­age points from sim­i­lar re­search con­ducted in 2018.

“That marks a near-record in­crease in the sur­vey’s his­tory. Work­ers also re­port be­ing much more at ease about their job se­cu­rity. Mil­len­ni­als have ex­pe­ri­enced a surge in confidence re­gard­ing their wages,” the poll anal­y­sis said.

“The re­sults, how­ever, in­clude some cau­tion­ary signs for man­age­ment. Amid a strong jobs mar­ket where in­di­vid­u­als can more eas­ily find new work, sur­vey par­tic­i­pants gave weak marks to the most im­por­tant driver of job sat­is­fac­tion: their cur­rent job’s po­ten­tial for fu­ture growth. In ad­di­tion, over 60% feel dis­sat­is­fied with their or­ga­ni­za­tion’s recog­ni­tion prac­tices, per­for­mance re­view process, and com­mu­ni­ca­tion chan­nels. Also note­wor­thy, men gen­er­ally feel bet­ter than women about mul­ti­ple fi­nan­cial com­po­nents of their work, in­clud­ing wages and bonus plans.
