Results of Employee Satisfaction and Retention Survey

Each year does a Employee Satisfaction and Retention Survey. My thanks to reader Sue S. for pointing out the results of the 2007/2008 are now available online at:

A few highlights:

  •  42 percent of employees have updated their resumes, while 27 percent have posted or emailed it. People are very actively exploring their options!
  • The top two reasons employees leave is money and advancement (not much an individual manager can do, other than help employees set reasonable expectations).
  • The third highest scoring reason for leaving is insufficient recognition. This is where managers can shine!

If you are looking for more on recognition, continue reading past blog posts. You can make a difference with employee retention!
