The majority of employees are happy in their jobs and do not plan to take a new job in the next six months, according to a new quarterly study by Randstad, released Tuesday.
According to the employee attachment index, 78 percent of workers say they feel inspired to do their best at work and 76 percent are proud to work for their companies. Further, 60 percent of respondents said they would not consider taking a new job in the next six months.
Despite the positive outlook, the study found large gaps between employers’ perceptions of how employees feel about their jobs and employees’ responses; particularly when it comes to feeling the company shares their values and trusting the leaders of their organization, each with an 18-point difference.
More than half of employers (51 percent) also report struggling to keep their best employees from leaving, and 71 percent report difficulties finding the right talent for jobs. Employees rank inadequate pay (38 percent), high stress levels (24 percent) and lack of opportunities for advancement (23 percent) as the top three considerations for changing jobs.
Randstad surveyed 546 employers and 3,436 full-time employed adults for the report.
