    Employees Are Engaged, but Want Career Advancement

    Employees surveyed are proud to work for their company and trust their executive leadership to make good decisions. But most said they're overdue for a raise.
 

The majority of U.S. workers enjoy going to work every day and feel inspired to do their best on the job, according to the latest employee engagement study from Randstad US. Overall, the research indicates that rank-and-file employees are fairly satisfied with their employer: Most said they're proud to work for their company, and they trust their executive leadership to make good decisions. These employees also feel that they're adequately recognized for their contributions to their company's success, and they believe their managers and supervisors are helping them achieve work-life balance. There are, however, some cautionary sentiments expressed within the findings. Most of the employees surveyed said they're overdue for a raise, and a significant number said they'll need to leave their current company in order to advance their career. Meanwhile, the majority said their employer cares more about the bottom line than their employees' career paths. Sadly, a great many of their managers agree. Nearly 2,280 U.S. employees and more than 500 corporate managers and leaders took part in the research.
