Bosses Don’t Realize How Unhappy Workers Are

POSTED: 8:58 am EST January 30,

NEEDHAM, Mass. — People don’t appear to be as happy with their jobs as their bosses think they are.
In a survey by Salary.com, nearly 80 percent of those asked said they’d
recently searched online job postings, and updated their resumes. Human
Resources managers, on the other hand, believe that on average only
about 40 percent of their employee base is doing that.     Additionally,  although people might be unhappy with their jobs, it wouldn’t take much to get them to stay.
More than half of those asked by Salary.com said a pay raise of less
than 15 percent would persuade them to stay in a job they dislike.
Another 20 percent said they’d stay for an increase of under 10 percent.
According to the survey, the top three reasons people leave their jobs
are poor managers, inadequate compensation and lack of advancement
opportunities.
