CIPD Employee Outlook shows employers fall short on managing staff expectations

A third of employees feel that their career development so far has failed to meet expectations; suggesting employers need to do more to retain talented staff.

The finding was revealed in the CIPD/Halogen Employee Outlook (EO) survey of more than 2,500 workers.

Employee dissatisfaction with career training and development was significant with 28 per cent reporting they were dissatisfied or very dissatisfied with what was offered by their employer.

However, the survey also revealed that levels of job satisfaction have increased during the past 12 months. This was measured using an index of satisfaction scores based on the proportion of people who agreed with statements about their work versus people who disagreed. In the latest EO, the index rose by four percentage points to +44.
