Is Just Having a Job Enough?

Employee vs. Employer: Who’s Happy in their Job?

Employees are resilient...
The economic downturn still hasn’t depressed the majority of population, but it has made people lukewarm about their jobs. Most people report they are "somewhat" satisfied in their job ?roughly 65 percent ?but very few say they were "extremely" satisfied (less than 15 percent).

Employers are a bit out of touch...
Employers think nearly 30 percent of people are "extremely" satisfied. That number is double the amount employees reported. Of course, many factors affect job satisfaction.
