Everyone wants to enjoy going to work and it is up to everyone to make sure this is the case. Simple things like how people are greeted or inducted into your team make a big difference.

Lumesse was interested in knowing what professionals from around the world really thought about their employers. So in May 2011, they conducted a global workplace survey to find out exactly that. The survey was sourced from almost 4,000 employees in companies across 14 countries worldwide, including the U.S., UK, Germany and China. The survey, called “Global Workplace Survey June 2011 — Like where you work — but still plan to leave?” provides a unique insight into what is really going through the minds of workers regardless of gender, age and country of origin.

The survey found that 69 percent of people are proud of where they work, and that 60 percent of people care about employer brand, but 29 percent of people plan to leave within the next five years. And a staggering 81 percent of people do not feel their skills are being fully utilized.

Perhaps those numbers look like a contradiction at first sight, but Lumesse thinks it may have found a link. The survey reveals that many people feel under-utilized and under-appreciated, so they hope these top 10 tips will help you find ways to reward and retain your people and address any potential mismatch between the talent you have in your organization and how you use it.
