Finally there’s some positive news for UK employers and HR - a new survey from The Future Of Work found that 60% of UK employees love their job. Happy employees are more motivated and more creative at work - and the key to this newfound affection for their jobs is it seems, technology.
The report found the following:-
- People believe that technology makes their working day easier as well as improving work/life balance.
- Nearly three quarters of UK employees believe that access to technology that helps to improve communication with colleagues is as important a ‘perk’ as free food and drink at work.
- Employees who believe their employer is ‘ahead of the curve’ with technology are twice as motivated and creative – but only 15% of UK workers believe that their employer is in that position.
This has yet to translate into higher productivity levels, however and is at odds with the Global Workforce Happiness Index which ranked the UK in 30th place.
Our latest in-depth article explores the issues around workplace happiness, incorporates five essential strategies to ensure your employees enjoy more job satisfaction and asks whether technology really is the key to happiness at work.
