I’m partnering with Casey Jankoska who is the Client Relationship Manager for Express Employment Professionals. Express Employment Professionals are always looking for top talent and great companies to work with. Her goal is to be the bridge to someone’s tomorrow. They are hiring in the areas including office, customer service, skilled manufacturing and professional positions. Most of the positions they work on are long term positions. They help their clients relieve their burdens and help them make the hiring process easier.
Casey sent me the following “Hiring Trends Survey” and I want to share the survey with you. Make sure to send this to people who you feel could benefit from this interesting report.
The following questions mirror what I see in today’s corporate climate:
Please rate your current level of work stress
36% feel “overwhelming” or “very high” stress at work
63% feel “moderate” or “minimal” stress at work
1% currently feel “no stress” at work
Please rate how the following has changed since last year:
49% state their current work stress is “higher”, and 39% state “it has stayed the same”
42% state their pay rate is “higher” and 45% state it has “stayed the same”
68% state their currenc workload has “increased” and 25% state it has “stayed the same”
- Resolving conflict and interpersonal issues are all part of our work life.
- Delegation and prioritization are more important than ever before.
- Coping with stress will always be an important skill for all of us.
- The most important key is to communicate effectively with your team, management, and with yourself.
Remember…YOU GET WHAT YOU TOLERATE!
Please send me your comments about your own work stress. Let’s see how we can plan for a better 2011!
