"If you were planning to quit your job, what would it take to persuade you to stay? CareerBuilder asked almost 4,000 employees that very questions."
I don't buy the survey results. I think the numbers are much higher. Recent studies indicate that job dissatisfaction is so high - it could be the opposite of what Careerbuilder found - instead of 1 in 4 being dissatisfied - perhaps it's 3 out of 4.
Take the number considering leaving their employer - our research indicates that 50% of your workforce in any given month is open to leaving for "greener pastures." They are looking on-line on job boards, social media sites, and talking with friends.
And in a counter-intuitive perspective from Careerbuilder's reason of wanting more money, the real issues were described later in the article and have been documented in hundreds of studies over the past few years:
“Employees want to feel valued,” Haefner says. “They want to be compensated well; they want to be challenged; they want to contribute to something meaningful; and they want to have a good work-life balance.”
What are you doing to make your employees feel valued?
