Stamford, CT, February 20, 2008 – Some of the most pervasive beliefs about the workforce have recently been challenged by findings from Towers Perrin’s 2007 Global Workforce Study – among them, that workers are highly stressed, that they resent the demands of new technologies and that they dislike their bosses.

To understand what drives employees to perform and succeed, Towers Perrin recently surveyed nearly 90,000 employees in 18 countries. The survey, which explored the drivers of workforce engagement – employees’ willingness to go the extra mile to help their companies succeed – also exploded many of the myths that surround today’s workforce.
