A majority of UK’s workforce is not satisfied with they do as a job meaning that the country’s workforce is in a demoralized state as the nation puts recession behind gradually.
According to technology firm Kronos, a majority 61 percent of employees feel neutral or unhappy about going to work, showing that that UK workers lack motivation and job satisfaction. The organisation's The Forgotten Workforce report, which was conducted by researcher Loudhouse and questioned 2,500 UK employees in retail, hospitality, contract services and manufacturing sectors, also found that only one in four or 26 percent of employees are very satisfied with their work. The research revealed that the biggest causes of workplace unhappiness are low pay (36 percent), little or no variety to the job employees perform (25 percent), and unpaid overtime (22percent). For ensuring survival in challenging economic times, employers are always forced to make tough decisions, however, these challenge also remain as part of that dress code. Employers are getting simple business processes wrong, such as underestimating the number of people needed for a specific shift (48%) or failing to accurately pay staff for the hours they work (19%), according to Kronos. "Technology can always be used as something that provides insightful views on in the workplace, or it can be used as a blunt instrument, but used in the right way and openly it provides a valuable service which is hard to ignore,”, said Kronos chief executive.
