New Satisfaction Study

Back to Blog

I am personally tired of the negative press related to unemployment.  I look at the numbers in reverse by saying to myself, “90% of Americans are going to work today.”  That just feels more positive.

Anyway, this link in today’s Indianapolis Star provides some interesting information regarding workers satisfaction with their employment.  The study found that 45% of Americans are currently satisfied with their work.  I think this might be a little high.  The reasons cited included low wages, bad boss and health insurance costs.  Another reason was the fact that workers found their jobs uninteresting.

Americans need to take risk, follow their interests and strengths and consider their hearts when pursuing their next career.  I might suggest that the growth of America is dependent on this and your personal happiness, growth and life engagement is at risk as well.
