Happiness among office workers remains consistent
Over four in ten (42%) UK workers are happy in their current job, mirroring this time last year when 41% of people described themselves as happy, according to new research from Office Angels.
Despite the absence of nationwide events – The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, London 2012 Olympics and the Paralympic Games – which created excitement in 2012, the recruiter’s Happiness at Work tracker suggests morale and job satisfaction remain constant.
Happiness is highest in Edinburgh, where nearly half (46%) of workers report they are happy.
In stark contrast, happiness levels dip in Nottingham and across Wales where over a third (35%) of workers claim to be unhappy, 8% more than the national average.
Nationally, generation Y workers are more likely to say they are not satisfied, with over a quarter (27%) of 25-34 year olds unhappy in their current job, compared to just a fifth (20%) of those aged over 55.
Happiness fluctuates between different industry sectors as well, with a significant proportion of people working in the arts (67%), professional services (53%) and education (47%) claiming to be happy.
