Almost half of UK employees are unhappy at work, as only 39 per cent of junior team members feel positive about whether their job is important and worthwhile.
New research conducted by employee services provider Personal Group has revealed that almost half of UK workers are unhappy at their job, while 30 per cent of front-line employees never feel enthusiastic about work.
The research uncovers some concerning statistics, including that 35 per cent of workers would be happier with greater recognition in the workplace.
However, the survey has also shown that happy employees are 12 per cent more productive than those unhappy with their work situation. Clearly, there are improvements to be made if businesses are to benefit from happy, well-adjusted staff.
