Back To Work, But Are We Happy_(3)

Back To Work, But Are We Happy?

A New Survey Measures the Nation’s State Of Mind

A new survey on workplace attitudes reveals that many Britons are genuinely happy in the workplace – but there is still room for improvement.

The Best You magazine’s Life Meaning Survey asked 2000 people in work across the ages, genders and regions about their experience at work. One question, ‘When it comes to your job/career right now, would you say that you love what you do?’…and it gave surprising answers.

While a relatively small percentage (15.4%) gave an unequivocal ‘Yes’, a mass 47% (or 941 people) replied ‘Mostly’. Roughly a quarter responded, ‘Not really’ and 11% said not at all.

The figures were fairly even across genders and ages, with a variation of only one per cent of women feeling more well-disposed to their jobs than their male counterparts, and people between 25-34 being around a percentage point happier than the other groups between 18 and 55+.

Northern Ireland, topped the poll of job satisfaction with 18% giving a joyous ‘Yes’, closely followed by the South West (18%), London (18%) and Scotland (17%). At the other end of the spectrum, only 9% of respondents in Wales were willing to say they love their job.

Asked what would add more happiness to the workplace, 52% said regular salary increases were the key to happiness, while just below came ‘Flexi-time for everyone’. Other high scorers were ‘offices with natural light’ and ‘more emphasis on work-life balance’.

A common theme among those volunteering ideas on how to create more happiness was a change in management, with answers such as ‘a good boss’, ‘good leadership’, ‘less aggressive management’ and ‘bosses that aren’t bullies’ this was representative of many people’s experiences.

Of the 38% dissatisfied with work, over a third were seeking opportunities in a different industry – but just under a third were taking no steps to change their situation, while 3% were seeking life coaching to help them make their choices.

Interestingly, nearly 29% of women and 25% of men admitted to suffering from depression, with 10% more women than men seeking therapy, and five per cent more women consulting their GP. Men also failed to talk to family and friends on the matter, and a higher percentage chose to ‘do nothing’.

THE BEST YOU’S SURVEY FINDINGS

Age counts…

  • More than 53% of 55+ have been redundant at least once, while only 13% of 18-24-year-olds have experienced redundancy.
  • Employers could be failing to realise an opportunity to develop their staff. Across the ages, fewer than 20% of respondents receive personal development training from their employer, but are more likely to receive sick pay and a pension.
  • Most age groups value the same things in the workplace such as flexi-time and sabbaticals, regular salary reviews, continuous professional development and social events. However in-work counselling and therapy was more valued by 18-24-year-olds (21%), while work-life balance was more important to the 45-55+ age group (58%).
  • Job satisfaction was least felt by 25-34-year-olds (12%) and most felt by 45-54-year-olds (16%), although all ages described themselves as ‘mostly’ happy.
  • Changing job or industry was most seen as a way to improve happiness by 18-34-year-olds (70%).
  • Wanting to leave a legacy in the world was most wished for by 18-24-year-olds, while more than 51% of 55+ respondents thought they probably wouldn’t.
  • Almost 83% of 55+ respondents believe in personal development, although this was consistently high across the age groups with 80% of 18-24-year-olds also working on their goals to be happy.
  • Looking at the media usage of different age groups, 73% of 55+ respondents read personal development books, while 61% of 18-24-year-olds find inspiration online.
  • Although similar across the age groups, 35-44-year-olds were most likely to have suffered from depression (30%), and of these 64% sought help from a GP or talked to family and friends (30%).

Postcode happiness…

  • In the East Midlands, 27% of people said neither they nor anyone they know are depressed.
  • A whopping 87% of people surveyed in Scotland believe personal development is the way to work on their goals to be happy.
  • 70% of South West respondents use books as a source of personal development, while 51% of those in the North West prefer blogs online.
  • Most hopeful about leaving a legacy are respondents in the South West (20%) while the least hopeful are those in Northern Ireland (18%).

Men vs. Women…

  • Flexi-time is more important to women (55% of female respondents) than men (47% of male respondents).
    Almost equally across the sexes men and women enjoy their job.
  • Women are more optimistic about leaving a life legacy (18% of female respondents) than men (14% of male respondents).
  • Women who have suffered depression were more likely to have seen a therapist (40% of female respondents) or talked to family or friends (35%) than men (30% of male respondents, and 23% respectively).

Wayne Dyer

Don’t Die with the Music in You

I was sad to hear recently of the passing of Wayne Dyer, as a Hay House author I had met him and heard him speak several times and was always struck by his humble yet inspirational persona.   He has regularly been listed as one of the ten most spiritually influential people in the world and last year Mind Body Spirit magazine ranked him at number eight.    Wayne was a best-selling author of over 40 books including his first book Your Erroneous Zones, which is believed to be one of the best selling books of all time, (an estimated 35 million copies sold around the world).

Hay House said of Wayne – ‘He offered a way of being that was at the heart of change, a way of experiencing the world so that your focus is internal — on the I AM — and connected to the Source energy of creation.  When we move from “what’s in it for me” to genuinely putting our energy and attention into visualizing ourselves in a capacity of serving, the doors to fulfilment open for us, when we extend ourselves in a spirit of giving, helping, or loving, we are acting as God acts’.

People giving tribute to him included Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGenres. Fellow motivational speaker Tony Robbins also wrote on twitter: ‘Wayne Dyer has passed away today. For those of us who loved him it’s sad, but he knew death was a transition. We send love for his next adventure.’  Many tributes mentioned that Wayne had no fear of dying and I must confess I envy him that.

Many fans called him Mr Motivation, one thing Wayne was brilliant at was helping people to overcome feelings of guilt and inadequacy and get started on what they wanted to do, where they wanted their light to shine in the world, one of the phrases made famous by Wayne was ‘Don’t die with the music still in you’    He certainly didn’t and his huge catalogue of work remains to inspire us.  It’s a great reminder to us all if there’s something you have always wanted to do, be it write a book,  start a charity climb a mountain, if not now….when?

Is Perfectionism leading you to Procrastination?

Is Perfectionism leading you to Procrastination? Sometimes we can be our own worst enemies – allowing the ‘inner talk’ to take over and tell us ‘We’re not good enough…won’t get the clients…’ This was really brought home to me when a colleague asked me why I’m not doing more vlogging around PR/Media skills etc – I had to really stop and think – with some embarrassment I had to admit that despite advising my clients, entrepreneurs, therapists, authors, experts to get their bite sized bits of content out there on short video clips I hadn’t been doing it because somewhere in my deep seated subconscious I was a perfectionist and because in my career as a Radio and TV presenter I had always had the works – make-up artist, great lighting , cameras, autocue etc – I believed my ‘home grown’ efforts wouldn’t cut it.

Ouch!   A realisation that my deep rooted perfectionism in this area was actually leading to Procrastination – by needing it to be ‘perfect’ I wasn’t doing it all!

It’s likely that your sticking point isn’t the same as mine was – maybe you have always wanted to write a book, but can always find excuses, maybe you know you should create an online course but just cant find the time….whatever it is check in with yourself that the ‘but’s that are holding you back are real….not imagined…. Here’s my thought for the day – You don’t have to get it right – you just have to get it going!

Create Compelling Content

If you are a small business owner, coach, therapist, expert, author – if YOU are your brand, the answer is a resounding yes!    Don’t get confused into thinking that a blog has to be a daily diary, a blog post is an article, its a sharing of your opinions facts and passion about your area of expertise.   We live in an information rich society and people are hungry for great content.   You may be thinking – I have lots of information and content on my website, but its not the same, blogs are much less static, you can use social media to invite people to read your blogs and interact with you on a certain topic where they may not necessarily want to spend time on your website at this point.

Fear of Public Speaking?

In a study of 2000 women it was found that the very idea of standing talking to an audience is so loathsome that women would rather go to an early grave.   The study found women fear making a spectacle of themselves, and are terrified of stuttering, tripping up and looking foolish. Read more
