A survey by shows many employees still aren’t very concerned about layoffs:

While more than half (52%) of employees admit they are working harder to avoid layoffs, 4 out of 5 employees say they have no concerns about being laid off in the next 6 months. However, when it comes to coworkers, more employees are concerned the jobs of others in their company may be in jeopardy – 42 percent are concerned other employees may lose their job in the next 6 months.

And while 74% are willing to take on more projects or responsibility to avoid being laid off, only 30% would accept a cut in salary or wages.

57% expect a bonus and of those the majority expect the bonus will be the same or more than their last bonus. 40% expect a raise in the next 12 months, equally split with those who don’t (40%) and 20 percent are unsure.
