Work-life balance important for employees

Despite uncertainty in the job market, the top reasons working Americans say they stay with their current employers are work-life fit and enjoying what they do, according to a recent survey by the American Psychological Association (APA). Fewer employees cited concrete reasons for remaining on the job, such as benefits, pay and a lack of other job opportunities.

The Workforce Retention Survey, which was conducted among employed adults age 18 and older, examined the factors that contribute to employee retention.

Although 60% of working Americans said they remain with their current employers because of benefits and 59% reported staying because of the pay, more than two-thirds (67%) said they choose to stay because their jobs fit well with the other aspects of their lives.

The same percentage said they stay at their current jobs because they enjoy the work they do. Even with the slow economic recovery and relatively high unemployment, only 39% of respondents cited lack of other job opportunities as a reason for staying with their current employers.
