Job Satisfaction Statistics

  • Only 45% of US employees find their jobs satisfying and only a slim majority find their jobs interesting (Conference Board)
  • 60% intend to leave if the economy improves in 2010 (Right Management, Nov 2009)
  • Only 45% of workers say they are satisfied (33 percent) or extremely satisfied (12 percent) with their jobs.
  • Only 20% feel very passionate about their jobs; less than 15 percent agree that they feel strongly energized by their work
  • Only 31% (strongly or moderately) believe that their employer inspires the best in them.
  • More than half of all Americans are unhappy with their job, according to a 2008 report by The Conference Board. The decline in career satisfaction is indicative of all workers of all ages and demographics.
  • A 2007 Towers Perrin survey of nearly 90,000 employees worldwide, for instance, found that only 21% felt fully engaged at work and nearly 40% were disenchanted or disengaged. That negativity has a direct impact on the bottom line. Towers Perrin found that companies with low levels of employee engagement had a 33% annual decline in operating income and an 11% annual decline in earnings growth. Those with high engagement, on the other hand, reported a 19% increase in operating income and 28% growth in earnings per share.
