More people really are getting fed up with their jobs

A new survey by workplace assessment specialists SHL states that more than 1 in 5 UK workers reckon that they rarely or never feel fulfilled by their jobs. This dissatisfaction (which is particularly prevalent among young people) has apparently got even worse as a result of the recession. And although workers are reluctant to act on it for the time being, it supposedly could mean a mass exodus once the job market starts functioning properly again.

If SHL’s sample is a representative one, that would mean almost 6m people are going into work every day without any great interest in what they’re doing. And they’re no happier about their jobs as a result of the recession; on the contrary, almost a third claim to have re-evaluated the kind of organisation they want to work for as a result, while a quarter are considering a complete change of career. I wonder just how many will be considering a complete change of career pattern?
