What Workers Want Study Released

Careers are changing, shifting from the traditional rigid, linear, and conformist path to one that is fluid, agile, and enables individual expression. As a result, many ask: What does it take to be successful in this new world of work? And what holds us back as individuals (not employees) from reaching our goals?

Less than half of American workers are satisfied with their career progression and rate their career success a “low C” (C-).  This study identifies the drivers of career success and what workers can do to get their careers on track and meet their career, and ultimately, life goals.  It also provides insights for employers as they consider hiring and retention strategies in the aftermath of The Great Resignation.
