Job Quality Matters

Job quality is not just about the job; it is a combination of key drivers that are important to each worker’s overall employment experience. Pay and benefits matter, and so do a multitude of other factors such as workplace safety and health, having a voice in decision-making, scheduling predictability, feeling valued, skills building, and advancement. Together, these distinguish an employer of choice from the rest.

Use the FREE survey to assess your organization’s strengths and weaknesses as they relate to job quality. This survey can be answered in less than 5 minutes. Click here to access the survey. 

Completing the survey is a first step in improving worker satisfaction, engagement, and retention. It is essential that you understand the needs, expectations, and desires of your current and future workforce, before deciding on what changes to make.
