  2. More than 50% of CEOs believe corporate culture impacts productivity, creativity, profitability, company value, and growth rate.

  3. Only 34% of U.S. employees are engaged at work.

  8. 60% of employees consider their colleagues to be the biggest contributors to job happiness.

  9. 57% of remote workers are satisfied with their job; only 50% of in-office employees agree.


The top three factors that contribute to job satisfaction are job security, opportunities to use skills and abilities, and a company’s financial stability.


The following statistics show why individual job satisfaction is crucial to the workplace.

  • Employees who feel their superiors treat them with respect are 63% more satisfied with their jobs.

Of course, if you really aren’t satisfied, or see yourself blending into mindfulness to wishful thinking and adapting to the time to relax approach, then clearly it is time to move on.


Lastly, never resign until your new job is settled and the new opportunity fits the bill.


Take care!
