A comprehensive cross-industry study of US employees uncovering the motivations behind why we work
For employees today, the opportunity for growth is worth more than money, Gloat’s Why We Work Report reveals.
We’ve always known that personal growth and upward mobility are major motivators for the American workforce, but now the numbers are in, and are painting a more nuanced picture.
Our data indicates that employees crave opportunities for advancement, upskilling and professional growth in their place of work – but a disproportionate amount of American workers –
especially from under-represented groups – also feel undervalued and underutilized.
Gloat’s Why We Work survey was initiated to gain a better understanding of this complex reality, with the aim of bringing about real, long lasting, significant change for the better. As we continue to unpack and analyze these results, we will inform the conversation with new information and statistics. We’d like to invite you to explore this data with us, and to check back often to discover new facts and findings to bolster growth strategies and management practices, and to uncover the real motivations driving the American workforce. For now, here’s a taste of some of the data-driven insights you can expect to find in the coming weeks.
