Employers beware. Your rank and file is becoming increasingly restless as the jobs picture brightens.

Don't be surprised if you see an exodus of employee as more and more of your rivals post "hiring" signs on their websites.

Yes, that morale problem is as bad as you think

Now that we're all sobering up from our holiday eggnog, it's time to think more about the economic recovery that many of us expect to start to take hold this year.

I've already become convinced that it will largely be a jobless one.

That means managers will have to get more out of their existing workers if production is going to pick up.

Of course, what we're finding is that those that have survived layoffs still aren't that enthralled by their work. You can only recite the "at least I have a job" mantra so many times before it loses much of its motivational power.

Indeed, a report released Tuesday, based on a survey of 5,000 U.S. households conducted for The Conference Board by TNS, found only 45 percent of those surveyed say they are satisfied with their jobs, down from 61 percent in 1987, the first year in which the survey was conducted.
