Poll Results: How Many Years Have You Been with Your Current Company?

Here’s what you had to say.

The economy is doing well right now and there are more open jobs than there are potential employees to fill those jobs. As a result, companies must compete to get the best talent.

And that means employee retention is incredibly important. Whether it’s a generous vacation plan, flexible hours, or great benefits, employers want to keep their employees happy for years to come.

We wanted to check the barometer and gauge retention trends by asking how long you’ve been at your current company. We also wanted to know how many employees your company has in total. Here’s what you had to say.

How Many Years Have You Been with Your Current Company?

5-10 years: 23%

1-2 years: 12%

20+ years: 11%

2-3 years: 11%

3-4 years: 10%

Less than 1 year: 9%

4-5 years: 8%

10-15 years: 8%

15-20 years: 7%


How Many Employees Does Your Company Have:

1-25: 29%

501+: 26%

251-500: 14%

101-250: 11%

26-50: 9%

51-100: 9%

As you can see, about 50% or so of those surveyed have only been at their company for 5 years or less. Companies need to provide great benefits, competitive pay, and stable work environments for their employees or they’ll leave.

What does that mean for you? If you hate your job or can’t stand your boss, start looking for a new job. There are plenty of companies out there that will treat you well, and you deserve better.

Now that we know how long you’ve been at your company, tell us why you love (or less than love) it in the comments section below.

    I have been with the company I am at now for almost 8 months as a temp and they still haven’t hired me because they are laying off people, supposedly I will be hired in mid April but I was to have been hired by the end of February so will see what happens. In the mean time I am up dating my resume and plan to look for a new job around June because this job isn’t cutting it in training to do new things, pay and atmosphere.
