Almost three quarters of workers in a recent survey said their companies have no formal program to solicit employee input. That can’t be good for hanging on to your best and brightest.
In the latest poll on just how miserable employees are feeling these days, the folks at MarketTools — a feedback-management software company — say 72% of respondents claimed they had no formal opportunities to offer feedback to their employers.
If those numbers are reliable, they could indicate an opportunity for HR to do some morale-building — which certainly couldn’t hurt your firm’s retention efforts.
Those efforts look like an uphill battle, according to the survey results.
According to the poll, salary was by far the leading cause of employee dissatisfaction — 47% mentioned money as their biggest gripe.
That was followed by:
- workload (24%)
- lack of advancement opportunities (21%), and
- dissatisfaction with managers or supervisors (21%).
The study canvassed 451 full-time employees aged 21 or older. It was conducted in late February.
