What Women Want in the Workplace Survey

Posted By Mary Thorsby, Saturday, December 24, 2016

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of employees who voluntarily leave their jobs has increased in recent years, jumping a full 10.4% between 2014 and 2015. Many leave because they are unsatisfied with their jobs, bosses, or workplaces. But what would have made them stay?

At our Make Your Mark Awards in November, Watermark announced our plans to partner with the Center for Creative Leadership to create a research initiative designed to better understand what today’s leaders want from their workplaces in order to create better workplaces for all:

  • What makes you want to stay at an organization?
  • What makes you want to leave?
  • What leadership development opportunities do you wish people would give you?
  • What elements will be most key to successful organizations and leadership in the future?

Please take our 10-15 minute online survey and let us know what you want from work! All leader levels are welcome and all responses are anonymous, voluntary and confidential. Responses from both women and men are welcome and needed.

This is your chance to join the thousands of leaders who are letting their voices be heard. The survey closes Friday, Jan. 6.

Our Thanks To You…

Take the survey now and you'll receive our Essential Skills for Leading Change webinar free! Led by senior CCL faculty member Kelly Simmons, our Wednesday, Jan. 4 webinar will show you how to up your game in change leadership and deliver results. Upon completing the survey, you will receive a code to use when you register for the webinar. You can attend the webinar live (it's from 10-11 a.m.), or  gain access to the recording afterward.

About the Center for Creative Leadership
The Center for Creative Leadership is a non-profit global provider of executive education based on its pioneering leadership research and analytics. For more than four decades, CCL has leveraged the power of leadership to transform individuals, teams, organizations and societies to achieve results that are powerful, measurable and enduring. With 11 campuses worldwide, CCL is consistently ranked in the Top 5 providers of executive education by Financial Times and Bloomberg BusinessWeek.
