The challenge and the stimulation of the work lead to such a high degree of satisfaction, according to 74% (1,200) of respondents (Figure 1). Other factors that significantly contribute include: salary and benefits, 57% (976); colleagues, 54% (886); the work environment at the company, 40% (655); and making products that help people, 32% (531).
How the Data Were Gathered
A total of 1,827 respondents participated in this year's survey. That's second only to 2007 when 1,830 people answered our questions.
Since mid-January, respondents accessed the survey questionnaire via a link listed in the print edition of Chemical Processing, on the www.ChemicalProcessing.com Web site, and in e-newsletters and e-mail blasts sent to readers. Additionally, those who follow Chemical Processing on Twitter at Chem_Processing and Facebook at Chemical Processing Magazine were also encouraged to participate.
