What Makes a Job “Great”?

“How’s your job?”

It’s a common question, but a loaded one too. In a 2018 report by Gallup, 7% of the world’s 3.3 billion adults who are working or looking for work say they have a “great job.”

Chances are, you’re in the 93% who don’t think they have a great job. There are many potential reasons that employees list for job dissatisfaction and it’s often a combination of factors, not just one:

  • Stress – 60%
  • Pay – 44%
  • Work / life balance – 55%
  • Lagging technology – 45%
  • Drudgery – 62%
  • Job below skill level – 80%
  • Not being valued by employer – 35%
  • No opportunity for learning and development – 60%
  • Boss or manager – 33%
  • Company culture – 33%
