75: Morale May Be Lagging

Ep. 75

Workers in a new study graded a large portion of their work as a B-, which suggests that they may not be as happy some executives would hope. 

In this episode co-hosts Dr. Tobin Porterfield and Bob Graham talk about the results from a new Kforce survey of 2,000 full-time employees.

Among the topics they explore are:

  • 80% of workers said their day-to-day work, work-life balance, company morale and benefits packages rate a B-. 
  • 10% more men than women loved their job.
  • Half the people who were surveyed would give up as much as 29% of their salary to work at a job they enjoy.
  • Top office weaknesses were poor communication/feedback, employee retention, staff diversity/inclusion and lack of transparency.
