What do YOU really want at work?
In several recent interviews about his new book, What Americans Really Want…Really, renowned pollster Frank Luntz spells out what his research has uncovered.
Luntz says in general Americans want more money, more time, more choices, less hassles and no worries. From our employers, he says we want more respect.
Among the other nuggets:
• One-third of workers today are scared about losing their jobs.
• One in three Americans would see their savings wiped out within six weeks if they lost their jobs today.
• One in four families have been impacted by job loss in this recession.
One of the survey questions asked Americans to answer whether they’d rather earn a lot more money in a job they hate, or earn a lot less money in a job they love. A whopping 84 percent chose love over money.
We want to know what you’d say—and why? Would you opt for the less enjoyable job with a bigger paycheck or would you prefer for your compensation to take a backseat to more fulfilling work?
