ALMOST HALF OF UK EMPLOYEES ARE UNHAPPY AT WORK – DO YOU THINK YOU ARE BEING VALUED AS AN INDIVIDUAL?

  • Almost half (48%) of UK employees are unhappy at work
  • Only 39% of junior team members feel positive about whether their job is important and worthwhile
  • Despite the negative statistics, happy employees are 12% more productive at work
  • Businesses could benefit from increased productivity with a few simple measures
  • Office furniture providers DBI Furniture Solutions advise businesses to embrace the varied personality types within the office and offer five must-have traits

New research conducted by employee services provider Personal Group has revealed that almost half of UK workers are unhappy at their job, while 30% of front-line employees never feel enthusiastic about work.

The research uncovers some concerning statistics, including that 35% of workers would be happier with greater recognition in the workplace.

However, the survey has also shown that happy employees are 12% more productive than those unhappy with their work situation. Clearly, there are improvements to be made if businesses are to benefit from happy, well-adjusted staff.

In response to the research, and in line with their passion of making all workplaces enjoyable and productive, DBI Furniture Solutions has released a report with expert comment on the five must-have traits you need to have in the office.

Fortunately, Managing Director of DBI Furniture Solutions Nick Pollitt has commented on a major area that can be improved:

“More employers need to be recognising the varied and unique mix of personalities within their business, and start viewing them in a more human way.

“There are so many personality traits within an office, but they can often get overlooked. This leads to individuals feeling unvalued and, at worst, dispensary.

“It takes a few simple steps to prevent this from happening, and it begins with awareness. If there is a creative genius in the ranks, make your appreciation heard. Do you have a constantly positive presence? Thank them!

“Productivity has so much to do with employee engagement, recognition and praise. With these values in tow, your business should see the improvements almost immediately.”
