Demotivated staff likely to move on

A third of British workers feel demotivated in their jobs, with many thinking of leaving.

And nearly half of the UK workforce (43%) is so dissatisfied that they plan to leave their
position within the coming year, according to a survey commissioned by Investors in People.

Staff listed impossible workloads, poor pay and lack of career development as the top three de-motivating factors.

More than a quarter of employees (28%) admitted to feeling unsupported by their managers.

Simon Jones, chief executive at Investors in People, said: “This research reveals a worrying picture, not only because such a significant proportion of UK employees are demotivated, but because it suggests that valuable employees may be heading for the door.

“Employees, however long they’ve worked in an organisation, want better support from their managers, alongside clear and effective feedback on their performance.

“This support is vital when it comes to mapping out career paths and identifying relevant training and development.”
