Job Satisfaction: 2012 Edition
Respondents to the 2011 version of The Conference Board Job Satisfaction Survey indicated higher levels of job satisfaction for the first time since the recession began in 2008. However, while the 47.2 percent satisfaction level recorded in 2011 is a positive sign, it is far below the 61.1 percent satisfaction rate recorded in 1987—the first year the survey was conducted—which remains the high-water mark.
In addition to offering a historical comparison between 2011 responses and those in 2010 and 1987, Job Satisfaction: 2012 Edition examines the survey data in terms of demographics (age, income, and region). The report also provides an overview of respondents’ satisfaction levels for various aspects of their jobs.
