According to a Gallup Poll, 51% of workers in the U.S. feel that they are underpaid!

Three percent of workers admitted that they think they are overpaid for the work they do.
Among those who earn less than $75,000, 62 percent of respondents said they are underpaid, compared with 38 percent of workers who earn $75,000 or more.
Women (55 percent) were more likely than men (47 percent) to say they are underpaid for the work they do. Gallup conducted the poll via telephone with 557 full-time and part-time workers. Source: Gallup Poll.
How is your workforce doing?? If your workforce is less than fully engaged, People Wise (www.pwhrm) can help. It has been shown time and time again that “salary” is not the biggest motivator for most employees. Some of the biggest pushers for employee engagment are clear expectations and goals, an environment of continuous learning, and individual recognition. Many programs that foster these, can be put in place with very little investment.
