Rebecca Greenfield from Bloomberg writes for Benefits Pro about a strange new contradiction in the workplace - employee satisfaction is at its highest level in 10 years, yet workers report low satisfaction with their benefits, compensation, time off, and "respectful treatment of employees" at work, according to an annual survey of 600 employees by the Society for Human Resource Management.

"Organizations are still being fiscally conservative, so they're not investing full force in benefits as before," said Evren Esen, director of survey programs at SHRM. Employers largely still offer health benefits, but as costs rise, more of the costs have shifted to workers via deductibles and health savings accounts. 

The uptick in employee satisfaction might have more to do with perspective: Remember when things were worse? "There's a stabilization, so to speak," said Esen. "Employees who are staying in their jobs are feeling there are things that are improving"
