    Thanks for the heads-up on the survey. I don’t have the actual survey but noted a post from the October 2006 Training Magazine.

    I thought that it might be interesting to compare the Accenture findings with a research being released on Wed. 8th November by 1st Executive. entitled “The Great Divide – Australians’ Attitudes to Work” THe Exec summary will be available for free on http://www.1stexecutive.biz. Where can I get more information on the Accenture report?
