Slovaks satisfied with their jobs

WHILE more than one half of working Slovaks are satisfied with their jobs, they do not rank among the most satisfied employees in Europe. Those most satisfied with their work are the Swedes, according to Poštová Banka ’s analysis based on data from the Special Eurobarometer 408 survey about the social climate, published in October 2013.

WHILE more than one half of working Slovaks are satisfied with their jobs, they do not rank among the most satisfied employees in Europe. Those most satisfied with their work are the Swedes, according to Poštová Banka ’s analysis based on data from the Special Eurobarometer 408 survey about the social climate, published in October 2013.

“Satisfaction with one’s job situation is an important factor, thanks to which the person can be positively attuned at work,” Eva Sadovská, analyst with Poštová Banka said, as quoted by the TASR newswire. “Thanks to this, he or she simultaneously becomes more productive or creative, which the employer will acknowledge, too."

The survey showed that more than half of Slovaks are satisfied with their work, but only 8 percent of Slovaks evaluated their job situation as “very good” and 43 percent of Slovaks used the evaluation “good”.

While Swedes are the most satisfied with their job situation (81 percent), Greece came in at the opposite end, where only about one fifth of its citizens are satisfied with their jobs and more than one half are dissatisfied.
