Some of you may look at this and see "Halloween costume", but maybe others see another day at the office (store, plant, hospital, etc.). Â Our new "Forgotten Workforce" survey asked hourly workers in the UK how they felt about their jobs.
The results indicate thatÂ 61% of workers either feel neutral or unhappy about going to work most days. Â The key sources of their dissatisfaction? Â Low pay (36%), little or no variety to the job role they perform (25%) and unpaid overtime (22%).
Only 25% of workers think their employer is very good at ensuring the right people are in the right place and the right time, andÂ 48% of workers say their employer underestimates the number of people needed for a particular shift at least once a month, making things harder for those on duty.
What do these workers think their employers can do to improve these conditions? Â Over 80% are happy to record when they start and finish shifts, but would also like to see their employers using technology to give themÂ Â more flexibility and control over their schedules. Â Two-thirds of workersÂ have difficulty requesting shifts and 65% have difficulty swapping shifts with colleagues.
Are your employees walking dead like our friends above, or are they dancing in the streets like Michael and his friends?
