Happiness hits year-long low amongst Scottish workers

A third (35.4%) of Scottish workers are unhappy in their current job, and would not recommend their employer (34.2%).  


The new research, from recruitment consultant Badenoch & Clark, also reveals that a further quarter (23.2%) stated that the dominant reason they went to work was due to routine, with one in ten (12.2%) motivated to work by spiralling debt.


The survey, which has tracked happiness since 2007, found that a further third (30.5%) were neither happy nor unhappy, demonstrating ambivalence within the Scottish workplace. This is in stark contrast to figures released last year, when 78% of workers reported high levels of happiness at work.


Change in the UK government, spending cuts, the forthcoming Scottish elections and the continued recession are all contributing factors to a dip in workforce morale.
