My business associate, John Sanpietro , sent me this article about job dissatisfaction.Take a look at this article and if it describes you or anyone you know, I just might have a solution for you:
NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — Fewer than half of U.S.
workers are satisfied with their jobs, the lowest level since
record-keeping began 22 years ago, said a report released Tuesday.
Conference Board’s survey polled 5,000 households, and found that only
45% were satisfied in their jobs. That’s down from 61.1% in 1987, the
first year the survey was conducted.
Even though one in 10 Americans is out of a job, those who are employed are increasingly dissatisfied.
both economic boom and bust during the past two decades, our job
satisfaction numbers have shown a consistent downward trend,” said Lynn
Franco, director of the Consumer Research Center of The Conference
Board, in a prepared statement.
“[That] could spell trouble for the overall engagement of U.S. employees and ultimately employee productivity,” she added.
report notes that job satisfaction has steadily declined over the years
despite big improvements in the work environment, such as a reduction
of workplace hazards and an increase in vacation days.
drop in satisfaction over the past 22 years spans various aspects of
employee life, including interest in work (down 18.9 percentage points)
and job security (down 17.5 percentage points).
employee satisfaction dipped across the board; workers in every age
group and income levels showed a drop, but workers younger than 25 were
the most unhappy in their jobs.
Almost one-quarter of respondents said they didn’t expect to be at their current jobs within a year.
