Survey Reveals Majority Of Workers Fear Losing Their Jobs and This May Be Affecting Their Work Performance

While significant focus has been placed on unemployment, a new survey reveals the current economic climate may also be having a profound impact on workers who are employed. More than 60 percent of working adults worry about losing their jobs in the current economic climate and one-in-five think about it every week, according to a new survey from University of Phoenix. Is this fear keeping you from realizing your full potential at work?

According to the survey, 44 percent of working adults believe the current economic climate has affected their behavior at work. Employees report that they are less likely to disagree or speak up, less likely to seek out a promotion and also less likely to be competitive with their co-workers.

Dr. Sam Sanders, University of Phoenix School of Business College Chair and a former Human Resources executive with more than 20 years of HR experience, discusses the new survey, how fear holds employees back and how individuals can set themselves apart at work.
