If you asked someone what was most important about their job, the thing that made them happiest at work, what do you think they would say?
A pay rise? A great boss??
We wanted to know, so we’ve asked 1000 UK workers. And the most important factor was…
…our 9-to-5 Buddies!
- 70% of people said their ‘9-to-5 buddies’ are crucial to enjoy a happy working life
- two thirds of us would turn down a job offer with a pay rise to stay working with people they liked and respected.
- In comparison, only 55% voted for money as the most important factor.
Read our recent blog post for more facts and figures from the research.
With 65% of people believe that being happy at work makes them more productive in their job, we want to celebrate the UKs passion for our workmates! We’re searching for the nation’s best ‘9-to-5 buddies’ in a social media photo competition…and there will be prizes for the work colleagues with the most imaginative photos!
It might be the person who sits next to you, but then we also want to celebrate the people who make the 9 to 5 work routine that bit more pleasurable, so it could be someone you meet every day on the train, the recruiter who has helped you get that next job, or the customers who brighten up your day.
