PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — If you feel underappreciated on the job, relax. You appear to have a lot of company according to a new survey on employee loyalty, or rather, the lack of it these days.

The annual Met Life survey of employee benefit trends suggests worker loyalty to a company hasn’t been this low in the last three years, what with layoffs, furloughs and bosses unable or unwilling to even listen to them.

Of course it’s not that simple for most of us. Rowan University business professor Robert Fleming believes managers should be better trained to deal with staff, particularly in these hard times. But if you’re a worker bee whose prospects for moving on aren’t good, make the best of what you’ve got now.

And bosses should consider the cost of replacing a disgruntled worker who does move on, as it can affect a company’s bottom line.
