Workplace Trends A Wake-Up Call To Leaders

Employees are feeling increasing stress in the workplace that, if left unchecked, could impact business performance, according to Towers Perrin’s Workplace Watch, a newly launched quarterly look at employee opinions across global organizations. Based on opinions of more than 650,000 employees, Towers Perrin found that only 55% of workers agree they can balance work and personal responsibilities, down from 62% just one quarter earlier. On the other hand, employee engagement, a key indicator of organizational performance, has held steady through the first quarter of this year.

Contributing to this outcome is that employees are actually clearer about their job responsibilities and have more confidence in their long-term career opportunities now than a year ago.
