Reward Strategy




Majority of Brits happy in their jobs

Sunday night dread does not exist for more than half of British workers, as 64% claim to either “love” or “really like” their jobs, according to research.

A survey of 1,220 workers, commissioned by One4all Rewards, revealed almost one in three (30%) enjoy their job so much that they plan to be with the company they are currently working for “for the foreseeable future”.

And a small portion – 3% – like where they work so much that they hope to be in their existing company for the rest of their working life.

When quizzed on the most important things in their lives, careers came third, behind family and romantic relationships.

The research also polled Brits about how willing they would be to go the extra mile to ensure their company succeeds.

More than one in three (36%) said they would be happy to work longer hours than they are contracted for, while a similar number (31%) would take on work outside of their job role.

Almost one in five (18%) confessed they would be willing to travel more or further for work.

However, very few would be willing to allow their bank balance to take the hit for the sake of their company’s success – just 3% said they would be willing to take a pay cut if it meant they could stay in their current role.
