Job Satisfaction Wanes, But SHRM Survey Shows Majority Of U.S. Employees Satisfied

The annual job satisfaction survey also examined employee engagement — how connected or committed employees are to their organization. It found that, on average, employees were only moderately engaged.

More than seven out of 10 employees were satisfied with their relationships with co-workers, opportunities to use their skills, the contribution of their work to the employer's business goals, and their relationship with their immediate supervisor.

But less than 50 percent of employees were satisfied with their career development.

The survey also found:
  • Seventy-one percent of employees frequently felt they were putting all their effort into their work and completely focused on their work projects.
  • Only 41 percent felt that people in their organization volunteer for new projects.
  • Older respondents were the only age group that placed relationship with their immediate supervisor as the top factor contributing to their engagement.

The survey polled 600 randomly selected employees at small to large companies. The survey produced industry-specific data that is available in SHRM's employee job satisfaction and engagement survey service for employers, People InSight® ( http://www.shrm.org/Research/SurveyFindings/Pages/PeopleInSight.aspx)

The full survey report is available on SHRM Online at http://www.shrm.org/Research/SurveyFindings/Articles/Pages/2012EmployeeJobSatisfaction.aspx
