Are You Unhappy At Work ?

Three out of four people are unhappy at work, but many will not bother looking for another job for at least a year, according to a new study.

A survey of 2,600 people showed how "rough" the past year had been, with 40 per cent suffering work-related stress, around one in eight having their pay cut, a third being made redundant and a similar number being overlooked for promotion.

One in five of those questioned by online recruitment firm said they would wait to look for a new job, partly because they did not believe there were enough vacancies around.

Workers in sales were least satisfied with their jobs, while those in engineering, hospitality, tourism, manufacturing and transport were among the happiest.

Isabelle Ratinaud of said: "It's really quite concerning to see how unhappy people are in their jobs, and how scared they are to change their situation. It is clear that the economic climate has had an impact on career confidence.

"With recent figures showing a contraction in the economy and the ongoing impacts of austerity cuts to public spending looming, one could be forgiven for thinking that change is not going to happen any time soon."

I ask myself why people stick with a job that makes them unhappy. I was in that situation 5 years ago, employed as a Sales Executive, and the job was controlling my life, so I got off my backside and did something about it, and I am so glad that I did. The change was made possible for us because we started our own business with Kleeneze working spare time hours around our jobs. Gone are the days of working a job that stressed me out, I now just work part time in a job that I do not have to take home with me at the end of the day. At the end of my shift I can happily forget about work until the next day.

If you would like to have an informal chat to see how Kleeneze can work for you please get in touch with us, we would love to talk to you.
