The shift is happening - employees are starting to look for more than "a job"

Carole Crane pointed out an article on the front page of USA Today that discusses the state of morale and potential movement of workers today.

Some time back, I predicted that once the recession started letting up, we would see a significant shift as people who were in organizations that were focused mostly on survival, left in search of more respect and involvement.

Looks to me like it's starting to happen. Likewise, we're seeing a significant increase in the number of engagements where we are partnering with organizations to help their leaders and teams commit and work better together. Most are good companies who now realize they need an even higher level of performance to succeed and who are willing to invest time, energy, and funds to make it happen for everyone.

What's your perspective?
