magazine recently conducted a poll about what employees need from their
employers in order to be happy and stick with their jobs. Responses
depended heavily on gender (that thing we're told
has no distinction in the workplace) and age
(which is OK to discriminate against).
Here are some findings. Overall, 69% like their co-workers and 54% like
their bosses. 33% hate the stress level and 28% think they're not being
paid enough. 18% expect free beverages, 17% feel owed a personal smartphone,
and 8% want free massages. 45% of Men want more money and 39% want a
promotion, while 51% of Women want reduced hours and 50% want flexible
hours (uh-oh, that doesn't fit the media template).
