From the summary:
The 9th Annual Study of Employee Benefit Trends delivers a clear message to employers: Bolster employee loyalty and satisfaction or economic recovery may arrive with unanticipated setbacks for retention and productivity.
This year’s findings reveal a workforce that has grown more dissatisfied and disloyal, to the point where one in three employees hopes to be working elsewhere in the next twelve months. Yet employers do not appear to be tuned in to this potential flight risk. Focused on the challenging business environment, employers remain confident of strong levels of employee job satisfaction and loyalty. A loyal and satisfied workforce is part of the foundation of business growth. Widening cracks in this foundation may force employers to pay a price in reduced retention and productivity when the job market improves.
