Do You Like Your Job?

If a new poll is right then many of you aren’t thrilled with your jobs.

The report from Gallup is not going to make many employers smile. Only 30 percent of you say you feel engaged or inspired at your job. Gerry Burns of Manpower in Houston told KTRH he thinks it's because many of you are just worn out.

“I think people are stretched to their limits. Where there used to be three people in positions there are now two or even one,” Burns said.

Burns says that he's surprised at how extreme the study says the problem is.

“It does surprise me that the numbers are so strong. I didn’t think it was quite that extreme,” Burns stated.

However, he's not stunned that many of you feel the way you do.

“For the last few years we know that about 80% of the people that are currently working are looking for another opportunity,” Burns stated.

So what would help the situation? Burns says management needs to be more engaged. And more money in your paycheck would help, too.

We work for monetary gain and I think it would go a long way. I think companies have too tight of a hold on their purse strings,” Burns said.
