When asked how secure they felt in their jobs:

  • 48 percent said they are anxious to somewhat concerned about being laid off
  • 23 percent said they haven't thought about it/are neutral
  • 29 percent said they feel secure in their job and their company's situation

"Employee confidence remains a bit shaky, as companies are still not hiring to replace the many rounds of layoffs that took place in the past 24 months," says Dr. Richard A. Chaifetz, chairman and CEO of ComPsych. "The fact that employees have several friends, coworkers and loved ones who are newly jobless contributes to this sense of job insecurity.

"A byproduct of this uncertainty is an increase in productivity per employee for some, as people struggle to prove themselves and keep their jobs. However, as employees continue to shoulder bigger workloads - with no relief in sight - stress levels will continue to mount."

The poll was conducted from June 9 to July 3, 2003, receiving responses from 639 employees of ComPsych client companies nationwide.
