Tue Feb 23 2010


(From PRWEB) -- Fifty-seven percent of employees say they regularly make suggestions in the workplace, according to a survey by Right Management. In fact, 27% claim to offer more than 20 suggestions every year. Right Management is the talent and career management expert within Manpower, the global leader in employment services.

The firm analyzed responses from more than 600 individuals throughout North America via an online poll conducted in partnership with LinkedIn .


"We find that employees really want to be heard," said Deborah Schroeder-Saulnier, Senior Vice President of Global Solutions at Right Management. "Making suggestions signals they are thinking about the performance of the organization and want to contribute over and beyond the requirements of the job. And this can be seen as a great opportunity by employers - if they know how to take advantage of it."

Among key findings:

--Nearly one-third of respondents indicated they offered more than 20 suggestions last year.

--And 30% made more than ten suggestions, but fewer than 20.

--Only 6% offered no suggestions at all.
