A majority of the results were positive, showing that salaries were up over last year and feelings on the economy and the job market were optimistic. Total compensation rose 8% , but more than half of respondents are still planning on making a job switch within the next 12 months, or are already considering an offer. So if you’re planning a job change, you’re not alone. Employee engagement is up, with half of our respondents saying that they are really into their jobs.
As mentioned above, this year’s survey focused on employee happiness and asked what makes employees, like yourself, happy, what would make them happier, and what employers are offering to increase the happiness of their employees. Why should you want to be happy at work? Seems like a straight forward question, but our report shows that not only are happy employees happy, but they are also more productive, creative, collaborative, engaged, and loyal!
