Employers say Canadian companies not living up to potential

A new poll indicates that employees are generally unimpressed with companies, both large and small, and state they need to do more for their workers.

The survey, conducted by Harris/Decima, found that of 1,000 Canadian twenty-somethings and baby boomers polled the two age groups had a great deal in common. For instance, among both generations, more than one in three agree that younger workers are not utilized to their fullest potential. In addition, one in three baby boomers and twenty-somethings also believe small and large businesses lack vision and could be more productive.

Peter Gilfillan, senior vice president of international sales for the company that funded the study, Monster Canada, said businesses need to do more if they want to grow.

"We know that there are a lot of companies who do a great job at keeping employees happy and engaged," said Gilfillan. "In order to retain the best and the brightest among both the gen Y and boomer generation, leading companies need to find the sweet spot that matches workers' values with their business objectives."

Business improvements often start with better organization. Jiffy Self Storage offers a variety of spaces for small businesses and large companies, ranging in size from 25 to more than 500 square feet.
