According to the current edition of The Conference Board Job Satisfaction survey, nearly half of US workers (49.6 percent) are satisfied with their jobs. After improving incrementally since the postrecession recovery period, overall job satisfaction is at its highest since 2005. The rapidly declining unemployment rate, combined with increased hiring, job openings, and quits, signals a seller’s market, where the employer demand for workers is growing faster than the available supply.
For the first time, a map of job satisfaction by state is included in the report.
Also available for download is a Chartbook containing graphics that were not published in the report but were included in previous editions of Job Satisfaction.
