One in three employees in Slovakia feel limited in everyday life by a lack of money and one in four are unhappy with lack of time, the Barometer of Employee Satisfaction and Motivation at Work shows about employees in Slovakia and seven other countries. Ipsos Loyalty Agency conducted the survey for Accor Services Slovakia in the first half of this year on a sample of 993 employees over 18 years of age.

Employees in the public sector perceive concerns about lack of finances most intensively when 54 percent of respondents from state institutions and local administration expressed this worry. However, only 18 percent of employees in private companies with mixed capital complained about lack of finances.

In the survey, as many as 85 percent of managers and employees of private companies with domestic capital said that they spend too much time at their workplace often or too frequently. However, employees in state institutions and local government organs complain about the lack of time the least of all polled groups. Eighty-four percent of female respondents have a feeling that they spend too much time at work, while 82 percent of male respondents have this feeling as well. Managers also feel a bigger workload than employees holding non-managerial positions. The poll did not include company owners, freelancers, farmers and self-employed craftsmen. SITA
