Employee Engagement Center Newsletter - September 2018

Job satisfaction is up again in 2018—the seventh straight year of improvement. Not only has overall satisfaction continued to climb, our annual survey of US workers found big gains over previous years on wages and job security. Both are sure signs that the effects of a tightening labor market are taking hold.

In a tight labor market, employees are more likely to find a job they like, and employers have to do more to satisfy workers in order to maintain retention and productivity. Given that this seller’s market for labor is likely to be with us for some time, improving the employee experience and employee value proposition will be critical to maximizing our organizations’ chances of attracting talent in the years ahead.

Hold the dates—October 18 & 19: Join leaders from Fortune’s “Best Places to Work” and “Most Admired Companies” lists at the 2018 Employee Engagement and Experience Summit in Las Vegas. You’ll hear firsthand how some of the world’s most admired and highly engaged companies sustain their cultures at a visit to the headquarters of Zappos—and from executives at other engagement standouts including, Quicken Loans, UPS, HP Inc, Novo Nordisk, Intuit, CarMax, Cardinal Health, Lockheed Martin, AT&T, and Deere & Company.
