Happy with your job?
In a recent study, put out by recruitment website Reed.co.uk, employees rated the things that they factor into their job contentment, and you may find the results to be surprising. For example, number one on the list to be content in your career? A stress-free and easy commute. 31% of the people who took the survey said that an easy commute is a big factor in enjoying their job, compared to 18% who said that a good salary makes them happy. Reed.co.uk has assembled the top 10 list from their results, and the results range from “cool/fun workplace” to “job security” to “dress down fridays”.
The results also stated that it often takes three job moves before works are happy , and that the average age for the happy worker is age 32. While many of the people who took the study stated that they were unhappy with their job (39%) only a quarter are willing to make a job switch to make them happy.
