Survey says…

From a recent Ipsos Reid / Royal Bank of Canada survey of 2,000 Canadian workers:

  • 36% of us are very satisfied with our jobs (down from 49% in 1998)
  • 50% are somewhat satisfied

And of the less-than-very-satisfied:

  • 29% report toiling in dead-end jobs
  • 15% say they have extremely boring jobs

To help bump up those stats, employee engagement advice courtesy of David Shaw from today’s Globe and Mail Report on Business, (The seven rules of engagement for a diversified workforce):

  1. Present a winning organization
  2. Promote admired leaders
  3. Develop positive working relationships
  4. Pursue meaningful work
  5. Recognize, appreciate and provide feedback
  6. Live a balanced life
  7. Communicate the big picture and a compelling vision
