The American economy is booming, unemployment rates are low across the country, and in one study, 33% of employees say that they feel high levels of engagement at work. Employee Benefit News also recently reported it costs employers an average of 33% of an employee’s annual salary each time a position turns over. Clearly both stats speak volumes about the high cost of turnover and employee dissatisfaction to employers in the broad sense when looking at today's workforce as a whole.
But what are parking professionals saying, thinking, and doing about one of the most common drivers behind leaving their employer, lack of engagement? Here at the Marlyn Group, we often reference statistics from studies and surveys around the country when blogging, and while these offer great value, we recognize they are not specific to the parking industry. Wouldn’t it be interesting to know what is actually going on in our own industry as far as employee engagement, retention and total rewards?
Let's find out together.
Today, Marlyn Group is launching our annual Parking Industry Careers Survey(TM). This survey provides an opportunity for career seekers, highly engaged employees and everyone in between to provide their opinions and insights by answering questions along the lines of:
- What are the drivers behind employee satisfaction for parking industry professionals?
- What are today's parking employers offering in terms of benefits and which ones, from the employee's perspective, are of highest value?
- When a career seeker chooses to pursue a new opportunity, what are the criteria they are using to make a decision?
- What is important for employers to provide in order to retain top talent?
If you'd like to be part of this first of its kind survey in the parking industry and have five minutes to spare, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will email you a link to the survey. Be sure to do so by July 13th to ensure your two cents is counted. Speaking of money, upon completing the survey, we'll send you an Amazon gift card as a thank you for your time and effort.
Once the survey's closed, we'll compile and publish the results in a few different ways over social media and an email blast to those who ask to receive it. Just think, the next time someone asks, "what's exactly do parking professionals want when it comes to career satisfaction?", you'll be able to give a pretty darn good answer!
