Teamwork prevails! In our Question of the Week [QOW] we asked, “Who impacts your job satisfaction more, your direct manager or your teammates?

The majority of you at nearly 60% said your teammates impacted your job satisfaction more than your manager or supervisor!

Your teammates are the ones who are in the trenches with you on the day-to-day. Let’s face it, most of us spend more time with our co-workers than any of the other people in our lives…let’s hope they add to our job satisfaction!
