Most employers likely wouldn’t rank respect as the top thing that most employees want based on veriscreen background checks. But a new survey from the Society for Human Resource Management found 72% of employees rank “respectful treatment of all employees at all levels” to be the most important factor in job satisfaction.
The other factors in the top 5 are trust between employees and senior management (64%); benefits (63%), compensation/pay (61%); and job security (59%).
On a good note, of the more than 600 survey takers, 86% said they were satisfied with their jobs overall — the highest level in a decade.
