A recent survey carried out by a leading business group has revealed that over the recent times, job satisfaction has managed to plunge to hit the lowest ever recorded level. It seems that the pressures of recession are still taking their toll on the working force.
The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development studied and analyzed data collected after an interview of 2,000 workers, and suggested that, despite the fact that the recession has now ended officially, employees are still plagued by stress and job insecurities.
The young working population of the country seems to be particularly unhappy, and the revelation has come after Gordon Brown yesterday initiated the Government's guarantee of a job, training or work experience for every unemployed person in the age group of 18 to
24 years, for a minimum of 6 months.
Undertaken by YouGov, the CIPD survey revealed that job satisfaction levels had slipped from last summer's +48 to a mere +35, with the biggest fall recorded among the 18 to 24 year olds as job satisfaction among the group dropped from +44 to a small +5.
"Even though the economy is no longer flat on its back, the 'real economy' as experienced in the day-to-day lives of workers is crippled", said Claire McCartney, a CIPD adviser.
