DIARY: PR pros eat food, research reveals

This just in: PR pros aren’t especially stressed out.

This just in: PR pros aren’t especially stressed out.



Lord knows we didn’t need a formal study to confirm this, but the fine

folks behind the annual Thomas L. Harris/ Impulse Research Employee

Satisfaction survey decided to ask around, just to be sure.



Roughly 52% of 1,256 agency employees surveyed last summer said their

present jobs have little stress or tension. Yet another shocker: half of

those surveyed hope to be employed somewhere else in five years. Gee, we

thought this was a profession in which the best people remain planted in

one place for all eternity.



Among the other completely unsurprising findings: the ’ideal job’

provides ’challenging tasks and a sense of accomplishment’ (97%) and

sufficient time for personal and family life (93%).



No word as yet on whether next year’s survey will seek to unravel other

sphinx-like mysteries of PR, like whether pros would like a raise, or

maybe a nice warm towel after lunch.
