Australian organisations not preparing staff for future success

By

A survey conducted by Kelly Services found that less than half of Australian employees believe their employer has prepared them for future success. How did the IT sector fare?

Kelly Services surveyed more than 4300 Australians as part of the company's annual global research into opinions about work and the workplace.

Only 42% said their boss had prepared them for future success. 42% said they have not been well prepared, and 18% were uncertain.

Which sector achieved the lowest score? Transport and distribution, with 36%. IT was second lowest on 38%, and it also had the highest proportion (49%) of respondents saying their boss had not done a good job preparing them for future success.

So it seems the idea that you need to manage your own career development is especially true for IT workers.

Which sectors received the highest ratings? Hospitality (51%), contact centres & customer service (50%), and business services (49%).

And it appears that IT workers aren't particularly impressed by their employers generally, as they gave them the lowest overall rating (5.7) of all sectors. Contact centres & customer service came out on top with an average score of 7.1, followed by business services on 6.9.

Government and travel & leisure tied for third place on 6.8.
