Coventry, United Kingdom, February 25, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Majority of workers report the most favourite thing about their job is simply having a job in the current, unstable employment market.
A global employment survey on Salaries - conducted by FindEmployment.com in order to establish if employees can live comfortably on their current earnings - has revealed that 53% of its respondents felt lucky for having a job. Despite many stating their gratitude for being employed, a surprising 23% of respondents confirmed their favourite thing about their job was going home at the end of the day. This could indicate that while many are glad to be in employment, a large number of employed people are unhappy in their jobs but unable to find something else.
Only 16% of workers stated that the best feature of their job was getting their paycheck, while a staggering 36% of respondents revealed that the worst aspect of their current job was the pay. For a large proportion of workers, it is clear that the most important goal is being employed, irrespective of the job type or pay, while a huge 86% of workers claim they worry about their finances and making ends meet.
A worrying 48% of workers surveyed stated they have no disposable income after paying all their living expenses, which could further indicate why so many are remaining in jobs they do not like, simply to pay the bills.
Further findings of the survey were:
· 71% of respondents were currently working in full-time, part-time or temporary employment.
· Over half (52%) have remained in full-time employment for up to 5 years of their working life, but only 35% remained in constant employment.
· One fifth of workers were made unemployed for a long period against their wishes.
· One third of workers believe their salary compares poorly to average industry standards.
"It's important to be sensible about the state of the job market. Every day, more and more employees feel lucky for having a job, especially now that unemployment figures are increasing, tremendously, on a daily basis,” said James Weaver, Director of FindEmployment
"At the same time, it is sad that employees feel insecure in their jobs and pessimistic about their future employment opportunities. Employers should encourage and reward their employees because it is the employees in a company that enable it to accomplish its goals, so employers should at least provide their staff with the funds they deserve to accomplish theirs,” he continued.
