Canadian Employees Say Employers Have a Direct Impact on Job Satisfaction

by Joseph ShaheenSeptember 21, 2013

In a recent poll by staffing conglomerate Kelly Services Canadian employees shared their belief of the importance of the manager/employee relationship at work. The Kelly Global Workforce Index (KGWI) report, published on September 13th, 2013 covered topics such as social media, employee engagement, and career development.

In a press release Kristin Supancich, Vice President and General Manager of Canadian Operations explained that “…employees don’t leave companies, they leave managers.”.

Results of the survey included that only 35% of Canadian workers feel totally committed to their current employers and the lack of “more interesting and challenging work” in corporate environments.
