A report indicates that an internal measurement of the company revealed that the morale among the company’s officers dropped considerably.
Twice a year, Facebook performs an internal measurement of the state of the morale of its workers, a practice that in its latest edition would have yielded unfavorable results for Mark Zuckerberg’s company.
The newspaper The Wall Street Journal obtained the data of the internal measurement made by Facebook to its nearly 29 thousand workers and reveals that in that statistic the number of happy employees with their employment fell by 52% , much less than the 84% that was registered last year and 62% that had already decreased in April.
This figure is complemented by a drop of 19% in workers who believe that Facebook “makes the world a better place” and a decrease of 17% of employees who say they are proud to work for the company.
In fact, according to the report, the workers’ commitment to Facebook also fell since on average the employees expressed their intention to remain in the company for 3.9 years, a decrease from the 4.3 years previously averaged the trend .
Of course these figures come amid the scandals that the company has faced in the last year in terms of security, privacy and management.
“It’s been a difficult period, but every day we see people struggling to learn the lessons of last year and build a stronger company,” a Facebook spokesman told The Wall Street Journal. “Everyone on Facebook has a role in our future and our heads are focused on getting good products and protecting the people who use them.”
The report indicates that in November the CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, addressed the findings of this measurement in a question and answer session with the company’s employees.
