Survey shows work/life balance, learning opportunities have greatest impact on job satisfaction

A new survey by Office Team showed that professional and managerial workers were most satisfied with jobs that provided work/life balance (28%) and opportunities to learn and grow (27%). Other factors included ability to accomplish goals (20%), camaraderie with coworkers (13%), and a good working relationship with one’s boss (11%)



The survey also revealed differences by age: People between the ages of 35 and 44 were most concerned with work/life balance (46%), while those between the ages of 18 and 34 indicated the greatest interest in opportunities to learn and grow (37%).

About the survey 
The surveys of professionals and managers were developed by OfficeTeam, a staffing service specializing in the placement of highly skilled administrative professionals. They were conducted by an independent research firm and include responses from 404 workers 18 years of age or older and employed in office environments and 1,013 senior managers at companies with 20 or more employees.  

Many thanks to Kate Lister for forwarding this survey to us.
