Managers Getting Good Grades From Employees

If you're like a lot of CIOs, you probably worry that your IT staff is feeling too much pressure, stretched too thin and tasked with a staggering slew of deadlines. While there may be more than a grain of truth to this, your teams may be happier at work than you'd think. At least that would be the case if their sentiments mirror those reported in a recent survey from Randstad US. Overall, the survey presents a surprisingly encouraging picture about overall workplace morale. The majority of today's professionals enjoy coming to the office, and they'd recommend their employers to prospective recruits. They trust their bosses, and are generally proud of their organizations. OK, that's the good news. As for the bad news and potentially even ugly things? A stunning number of survey participants say they expect to accept a job offer from another company in the near future. Among the still-lingering concerns within the ranks: A lack of regular performance reviews and training, as well as the ever-growing feeling that—thanks to constant connectivity—they're never not at work. The survey findings also shed insight into various gender differences on value, compensation, relationships and more. Over 3,280 employees participated in the research.
