The Changing Workforce February 2005


Tue Feb 01 2005


This article focuses on a study which analyzes the changing worker priorities. The study was conducted by Families and Work Institute, a not-for profit organization in the United States that researches the changing workforce, family and community. It was based on data from The National Study of the Changing Workforce, conducted in 1992, 1997 and 2002, and the Quality of Employment Survey, conducted in 1977. Findings suggest that workers who are dual-centric advance further in their careers than others. Focusing primarily on work can lead to burnout or stress-related illnesses. It was also found that fewer workers overall wanted to move into jobs with more responsibility. Despite many people's decreased ambition, employees are working longer and harder than ever.
