Workplace culture continues to evolve and with jobs becoming more demanding, they overlap more with our personal lives. Not to mention, with technology at our fingertips, it’s easier for the two to merge, allowing work to encroach more on your personal life. So, what do Irish workers think about their jobs and their workplace today?
With the construction of Ireland’s next generation business destination underway at Dublin Airport,
Dublin Airport Central conducted a recent survey with 1,000 people in Ireland on their jobs and work environment.
They asked Irish workers what they really think about their jobs and where they work; How much of their lives are dedicated to work? Are the Irish happy at work?
The survey revealed the following:
Job satisfaction is the most important aspect of a job
15% of those surveyed are not completely happy with their current work environment, with it being a key factor in switching jobs
Only 13% of Irish workers said they had a great work/life balance
50% of Irish workers often work overtime
18% of Irish workers surveyed never socialise with their colleagues
69% of those surveyed want to work for a company that cares about society and the world we live in
1/3 of Irish workers wouldn’t recommend the company where they work to a friend
