Job Satisfaction: 2015 Edition: A Lot More Jobs—A Little More Satisfaction

September 2015 | Research Report

According to the current edition of The Conference Board Job Satisfaction survey, 48.3 percent of US workers are satisfied with their jobs—an increase of 0.6 percentage points from the previous year. Much of the improvement has been rooted in increased job security and greater satisfaction in other career development areas. But despite signs that wages are beginning to increase in some sectors of the economy, lackluster compensation continues to disappoint most US workers, as do other economic components of job satisfaction, such as promotion policy and bonus plan.
