At any given time seventy percent of those currently employed are searching for other jobs. According to Mental Health America, less than one-third of us are happy or content with our work. Eighteen percent are dissatisfied with their current position with some even sabotaging the success of their workplace.
Studies show being unhappy with, or unfulfilled by work, can take a toll on our health, relationships, and even lifespan. Ever hear a co-worker in the office say, “I can’t wait to get the hell out of here?” For some employees that comment is not only applicable to the day at hand but to the job itself.
Top 5 reasons for Content Employees: Relationship with co-workers, contribution of work to organization’s business goals, meaningfulness of the job, opportunities to use skills/abilities, and relationship with immediate supervisor.
Top reasons for leaving a job: Minimal wage growth, lack of opportunity, excessive overtime, lack of teamwork and lack of flexibility on just how a task is completed.
