Why Are Brits Unhappy At Work?

New research has found that 71 per cent of Brits have ambitions of setting up their own businesses. According to People Per Hour, which carried out the research, the main reason for this is that they’re not getting what they need from their employers.

London Loves Business shared the research, which revealed that 68 per cent of those questioned have little or no access to flexible working arrangements, while 62 admitted that they have no passion for the job they do.

What’s more, over half (57 per cent) of those questioned said that their biggest bugbear at work is a lack of praise, something that costs nothing but that could clearly go some way towards improving people’s job satisfaction.

Founder and CEO at People Per Hour Xenios Thrasyvoulou told the news provider that people are looking for a way to turn their work dream into a reality, and for some that will mean starting their own business.

However, he added that three-quarters of those surveyed said that financial stability is the biggest barrier to this.

“Of course, every business may not be a success. But the combination of passion, obtainable goals and a flexible, skilled team to support business growth is the best recipe for success,” he asserted.

This comes as Personnel Today highlighted research from Fellowes, which found that British office workers spend the equivalent of 67 days a year sitting at their desks.

Over two-thirds (64 per cent) of those surveyed said that they felt their working environment had a negative impact on their health.
