And looking at the individual grades for each of the five areas, just four in ten or fewer employed Canadians give their employers an "A" grade:
- 42% of employed Canadians give their employer an "A" grade in when it comes to their employer making them feel that "they fit in their work role";
- 39% give their employer an "A" grade when it comes to their employer making them "feel supported in their role";
- 38% give their employer an "A" grade when it comes to making them feel "clear in their role";
- 38% give their employer an "A" grade when it comes to making them feel that they "are valued at their work"; and
- 32% give their employer an "A" grade when it comes to making them feel "inspired".
But while most employed Canadians may not give their employees an "A" grade when considering these five work-environment statements, a strong majority of three in four employees (74%) say they are "very productive" in their workplace.
These are the findings of an Ipsos-Reid/Juice Inc. survey conducted from September 17th to September 24th, 2004. For the survey, a representative randomly selected sample of 1002 adult working Canadians who are either working full-time or part-time for an employer (and not `self-employed') were interviewed by telephone. With a sample of this size, the results are considered accurate to within 1773.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20, of what they would have been had this entire population been polled. The margin of error will be larger within regions and for other sub-groupings of the survey population. These data were weighted to ensure the sample's regional and age/sex composition reflects that of the actual overall Canadian population according to the 2001 Census data.
