Workers happy with their jobs

A survey has found that 94 per cent of employees in Switzerland are satisfied with their job situation – and that 35 per cent are in fact very satisfied.
Only six per cent said that they were dissatisfied with their jobs. The survey results aired on Monday on “Eco”, a business programme on Swiss television.
It seems that women in particular are happy at work: 37 per cent said they were very satisfied in comparison with 33 per cent of the men. As for the workload, 64 per cent of those questioned said it was just right. A third said it was too much and three per cent said it was too little. The employee’s age
had an influence on this. Just 22 per cent of 15-29-year-olds felt burdened by
their workload, compared with 34 per cent of 30-49-year-olds and 42 per cent of
those over 50. Swiss salaries scored well: 85 per cent said they were
satisfied with their income – and 20 per cent said very satisfied. Just 15 per
cent indicated that they should be earning more. The managers of Switzerland also rated highly. While nine per cent of the workers said they were
dissatisfied with their boss, 47 per cent said they were satisfied and the
remaining 44 per cent said very much so. and agencies
