A job quality deficit exists when what workers have in their job falls short of what they value in a job.
Job quality deficits are most common on issues of psychological attachment, extrinsic rewards, and flexibility.
Just over one-third (36 percent) of employees have less flexibility in their work schedules and less opportunities to balance their work and personal lives than they would like.
Similarly, almost another one-third (31 percent) of employees have a job quality deficit in the area of extrinsic rewards, such as pay, benefits, job security, and opportunities for advancement.
Over one-quarter (26 percent) of employees have a job quality deficit with respect to psychological attachment. This indicates they have less commitment and trust in their employer than they would like.
