Job satisfaction wins

30-03-2005

Boring jobs are the pits, survey claims. Workers feel that being stimulated by their job is more important than what they earn, according to new research.

In a survey commissioned by Thames Valley based agency Parkside Recruitment, 62% of respondents thought variety was the spice of work, with a repetitive and heavy workload the main cause of job dissatisfaction.

Jennie Emerson, Parkside�s managing director, said: �More companies are starting to realise that not all employees need to work a traditional nine to five day in the office to be effective.

�However, there�s still a long way to go and factors such as lack of affordable childcare make it difficult for some mothers to work even part-time.�
