When was the last time you actually kept a New Year’s resolution?
If you are anything like me, you probably go into the new year with all sorts of great intentions and plans about how you are going to change for the better. But life goes on, other things happen, and you find you’re lucky if you can even remember your New Year’s resolutions anytime after April 1.
That’s why this new survey from Glassdoor and conducted by Harris Interactive about employees’ work-related resolutions for 2013, though entertaining and fun, should be read with a skeptical eye.
The younger you are, the more you want a raise
According to Glassdoor, “One-third (32 percent) of employees said that a salary raise is their top work-related resolution for 2013, followed by looking for a new job (23 percent), improving their performance/rating by their supervisor (21 percent), attending work-related training (16 percent), taking/using all their vacation days earned (13 percent), and socializing with work colleagues more (9 percent), among others.”
