Employees Are More Determined Than Ever To Get Raises In 2013

Business Insider

The new year brings new resolutions — and employees want a raise in 2013.

According to a survey released today by Glassdoor, 32 percent of workers surveyed are focused on getting a raise and 24 percent want to work on their leadership and management skills. 

“As employment confidence gradually improves, it’s no surprise to see employees looking to wrest back control over their own destiny, which is why we see their focus on more money, a new job or a fresh commitment to their on-the-job performance,” said  Rusty Rueff, Glassdoor's career expert. 

Aside from this, 23 percent of workers said they're looking for a new job for the new year and two percent admitted to wanting to get their boss fired as their top goal.  

Here are some other findings from the study:

  • 21 percent want to improve their performance/rating by their supervisor.

  • 16 percent want to attend more work-related training.

  • 13 percent want to take/use all of their vacation days earned.

  • Nine percent want to socialize more with work colleagues.

The survey included responses from more than 2,050 U.S. adult workers.
