(HealthDay)—Compared to other types of employees, pharmacists are not as happy, according to results from the TINYpulse employee engagement surveys.

The , entitled "Pharmacy Employee Engagement Report 2014," are based on an online employee survey engagement tool.

The survey found that pharmacists are 12 percent less happy compared to other benchmarks. Compared to other employees, pharmacists are less likely to know their organizations' vision, mission, and values (approximately 33 versus 50 percent). Ten percent of pharmacists could not think of one positive thing to say about their organization.

"Dialogue is needed between pharmacists and management to identify trends and opportunities for substantial improvement," the authors write.
