Two opposing forces are causing many people to lose their desire to work for companies and pose a number of questions about the future of incentives and recognition.
In a report for CNN Money, it was concluded that while most workers are actually doing more work, their wages are being cut and this is resulting in a major backlash and plummeting morale.
Michael Erwin, a senior career adviser at CareerBuilder, was on the panel for a recent study which discovered that 24 per cent of workers say they do not feel loyalty to their current employer and a further 19 per cent want to move and get a new job this year.
He continued: "Workers feel like they took the brunt of the recession because companies had to do whatever they could to cut costs, and what they cut were programmes that directly impacted employees."
Ed Moyle of TechNewsWorld recently explained that, when morale dips, IT security is put at higher risk as employees who are stressed, overworked or fatigued are less likely to have the time to ensure proper procedures are followed.
