Employee Distrust of Employers

This report from the American Psychological Association – 2014 Work and Well-Being Survey – shows that “…only about half of employed adults believe their employers are open and upfront with them, about one-third say their employers are not always honest and truthful and almost a quarter say they don’t trust their employers.”(3) Throughout this document, comparisons are made to previous reports dating back to 2011. A very telling indicator is found on page 27 – Employee Engagement – which is characterized “… as a positive, fulfilling, work-related state of mind that is characterized by vigor, dedication and absorption.” Only 23.2% of respondents fell into the “high” or “very high” categories; 25.2% fell into the lowest two tiers; and 51.6% fell into the average ranking. Of all the named services polled, the top named service was “educational services”(47) Use these results against the 2014 Edelman Trust Barometer and read this excellent summary in Forbes.
