Employees gripe, but they don’t quit

While many people gripe about their jobs from time to time, few are converting words into action.

When it comes to hunting for a better position elsewhere, most of us don’t bother, according to a survey by Accenture.

Nearly half of the 3,400 workers in the survey said they were dissatisfied with their jobs, but only 30% of respondents had any plans to switch employers.

The more common strategy was to build up experience and look for a better opportunity in-house.

And while feeling underpaid was the biggest complaint, only about half of those surveyed had ever asked for a pay raise.

Tip: If you’re feeling dissatisfied with your work/life balance, ap­proach your boss about flextime.

Make the case with this data: The Towers Watson 2010 Global Workforce study says that people who work off-site some of the time are just as productive (41%) as their desk-bound colleagues, or more so (47%).
