Small Business is our Business

A December 2011 employee survey conducted by Cornerstone OnDemand, an international management consultant firm, found fifteen percent(15%) of those surveyed plan to leave their current job in the next twelve months.   That is an estimated 21 million Americans and a potential price tag of $2 trillion to U.S. employers in 2012.  Whether this really comes to pass in this stagnant job market, is yet to be seen.  What this does indicate is a disengagement  on the part of American workers.  Over one in two (54%) feel their colleagues appreciate them more than their supervisors. Nearly three in five (56%) say that aside from compensation and benefits, being appreciated would motivate them to stay in their current position. 

This survey was conducted with 2,141 U.S. adults aged 18 and older who were emoployed full time or part time.
