The Modern Workforce By Numbers
Insights from PSFK's original workplace survey reveal the gap between employer and employee values
The PSFK Workplace Survey 2016 polled over 140 PSFK readers across social channels, web and email that identify as working professionals—part time, full time and freelance—to share qualitative and quantitative information about their experiences in the workplace.
The picture painted by our original study for PSFK's The Future of Work report was one of little overlap between employees and employers understanding and appreciation of one other.
Many employees today have a set of values that they share with their peers. When surveying professional's attitudes toward their current employers, and the impact these perceptions have on morale, motivation and creative thinking, PSFK uncovered that respondents expressed frustration with the impersonal and undirected workplace status quo. Many workers today feel a disconnect between these needs and their work places.
