Small business employees 'happiest'
According to figures released by a leading employment body, workers from smaller firms are the most satisfied in their jobs.

The survey, carried out for the Trades Union Congress (TUC), discovered that those who work for smaller firms are more likely to be loyal and committed than people on the payrolls of larger organisations.

Furthermore, the TUC figures found that they are most likely to be satisfied in their posts, reported politics.co.uk.

"By having a committed and loyal work force that has a say in how the organisation is run, the smallest business has a bigger advantage," said John Wright, chairman of the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB).

Mr Wright added that the FSB was "really pleased" with the findings of the TUC survey and said it contributed to clearing up myths about the recruits of small businesses.

Energy firm E.ON recently found that employees who work for smaller firms are more likely to be environmentally friendly than those working for larger businesses.
