There is an increasing concern about staff morale in our company. To find out more about this problem, a questionnaire survey of job satisfaction among senior- and junior-level employees in our company has conducted. The aim of this survey is to identify sources of satisfaction and, particularly, dissatisfaction in employees’ professional lives. In this survey, recommendations are made to improve areas which employees are unhappy about. And it is hoped that these measures can help to boost morale in our company and ultimately bring about an improvement in performance and productivity.
