AMSTERDAM – Dutch employees have little devotion to their employers. A survey shows that 40 percent of personnel feel only slight connection, or none at all, to their employer. Consultancy bureau Towers Perrin reported this on Tuesday,

The study shows that 60 percent of workers feel somewhat or very connected to their work. This puts the Dutch largely in line with workers in the rest of Europe and the rest of the world in fact, says Towers Perrin. 

The consultancy bureau says that worker loyalty has decreased between 2005 and 2007. It is not all that surprising, Towers Perrin says, that workers who feel more committed perform better.

They are also less likely to change jobs. On average 64 percent of workers as a whole say they are considering leaving their current employer. That figure is 47 percent among very devoted workers.

Workers say salary is the most important consideration in choosing a new employer. Towers Perrin says this is the first time that salary has been in the top ten of considerations in the Netherlands. It has always been the case abroad however, the bureau says.
