Here’s what the study found for Wales:
• Workers in Wales rate job enjoyment ahead of salary
• 29% of workers in Wales are not satisfied with their current job
• Leisure and hospitality is the most satisfying sector to work in: but retail is the least
London, UK – 18 November 2011 – A study into the career satisfaction of British workers reveals that 28% are not satisfied with their current job and only one in four have no plans to change their career in the next five years. The research, carried out among 1,200 British workers and commissioned by Train4TradeSkills, shows that workers in Wales appear to be less happy than other British regions, coming eighth in the regional career satisfaction league table, topped by the West Midlands and the South West.
According to the research, British workers believe a decent salary is key to career satisfaction, cited by 64%, as well as a sense of achievement in your work (59%) and being able to work the hours you want (46%). Workers in Wales value most carrying out work they enjoy (69%), ahead of salary (63%) and flexible hours (47%).
