According to new findings, human resources (HR) employees are seeing a massive increase in their workload, but are happier than ever.
Recruitment consultants Badenoch and Clark's Happiness at Work Index found that 94 per cent of personnel managers claimed to be satisfied in their roles, a rise of 18 percentage points in three months.
However, it seems that being busy doesn't suit everyone - 29 per cent of the 1,086 workers asked said they had resigned due to an increasing workload.
Spokesperson for the agency Allison Gray said: "The key message for employers is not to misread the unprecedented high levels of happiness for long-term genuine engagement."
Ms Gray also added that employers need to be seen to be addressing the issues hitting HR workers at present or risk "losing a lot of their best talent".
There has reportedly been a surge in the demand for executive-level HR workers experienced in shakeups and job cuts during recessions, Personnel Today recently reported.
