Employee Surveys Find that Contract Workers Hurt Morale


Posted by Insightlink on 02/20/14

A recent survey taken in India has offered some interesting results that might cause a downward trend in employee morale surveys. It followed several different sectors that included telecom, IT, healthcare and manufacturing. What researchers found was that the amount of regular employees were shrinking each year. In many sectors, contract employees are replacing regular employees as the main source of new workers. This means that permanent jobs are becoming less commonplace, affecting job stability across every sector. Job growth and corporate growth is also affected, leaving experts to believe that employee morale will be next to take a dive.

Though the survey applies to India, the same trend is starting to happen some in the United States. Companies are afraid to grow due to the current state of the economy, which has not fully recovered from the 2008 collapse. What this means for many employees is that jobs are becoming scarce in many fields, and lateral movement is less likely. Employers already struggle with morale and engagement in the US.

Disengaged employees make up close to 70% of the workforce, something that employers want to fix. However, many do not have the tools to do so. A plan of action is needed to strengthen the bonds between managers and employees. This process starts with an employee morale survey. The information gleaned from this survey will help employers to know what their weaknesses are.
