Finding Personal Time Concerns Workers

Despite continued layoffs and a stagnant job market, professionals recently surveyed by OfficeTeam identified the ability to balance business and personal demands as their No. 1 career concern. OfficeTeam, a Menlo Park, Calif., staffing service for administrative personnel, surveyed 567 U.S. men and women working full time. Nearly one-third, 32%, were most concerned about balance, while 22% were most concerned about job security. Another 18% said earning a competitive salary was a top priority. "Recent world events have prompted many people to reassess their priorities and place greater importance on personal pursuits," says Liz Hughes, executive director of OfficeTeam. "As a result, flexible schedules may hold greater appeal than career advancement or increased compensation."
