British workers 'are some of the friendliest'

19-07-2006

British workmates are some of the easiest to get on with in the world, a new study reveals.

Just 11 per cent of people in the UK leave their jobs due to clashes with their colleagues or boss, showing that as a nation, British employees manage to bond pretty well.

Workers in Belgium and the Netherlands were much more likely to change jobs due to disliking their workmates, with 40 per cent and 26 per cent of workers respectively leaving their jobs for this reason.

The survey of 3,170 workers from across the world by international recruiters Robert Walters found that the overall most popular reason for leaving a job was for career advancement.

While 20 per cent of Britons left their job to advance their careers, much fewer moved for money alone, with only 11 per cent being lured by a higher salary to change jobs.

Around 14 per cent of British workers left their jobs for geographical reasons, such as moving house or reducing the daily commute.
