Employees Satisfied With Their Jobs

 According to the Society of Human Resource Management’s 2009 Job Satisfaction Survey, employees who are satisfied with their jobs are more likely to stay with their employers.

According to this survey, 86% of employees indicated overall satisfaction with their current position, with 41% of employees reporting they were very satisfied. What’s more, majority of employees (58%) reported that the current economic climate has not made any difference in their level of satisfaction– and this is good news for employers, especially during the economically challenging time.

It is not surprising that during the current economic downturn, employees selected job security as the most important aspect of their job satisfaction. It was also at the top of HR professionals’ list this year for the first time. Benefits, compensation/pay, opportunities to use skills and abilities and feeling safe in the work environment rounded off employees’ top five very important job satisfaction contributors-nearly identical to the top five of 2008.
