The Social Workplace: A Compendium
AEI
2024.06.12
This report is a compendium of survey data and analysis developed as part of a multiyear project looking at the social dimension of work and the economic, psychological, and emotional experience of American workers. Each of the three volumes are available online and combined here for ease of access.
The first volume focuses on how the American workplace generates social capital. More than half of Americans have met a close friend at work or their spouse’s workplace, and workers who have close workplace friends are more likely to be satisfied with their employment and less likely to look for another job.
In the second volume, authors examine what Americans expect from work, whether they are getting what they say they need, and what factors play into their workplace priorities―specifically, the relationship between financial considerations, such as pay and benefits, and noneconomic workplace needs like mentoring and connections to supervisors.
The final volume analyzes participant interviews from an earlier quantitative survey of worker attitudes; these interviews targeted participants age 22?29 to better understand the priorities and concerns of younger workers. The report concludes that young workers seek not only economic rewards but also roles that are fulfilling and contribute to their communities, indicating a shift toward valuing both material and social aspects of work.
