One in two Slovak employees unhappy with salary

According to a recent survey of workers in Slovakia, the most important factor when it comes to job satisfaction is the pay.

Salary levels were viewed as the most important indicator of satisfaction by 97 percent of those questioned. The survey also showed that one in two Slovaks is dissatisfied with his or her salary.

The survey, Employee Satisfaction and Motivation Barometer, was carried out by Accor Services on a representative sample of economically-active people in Slovakia and seven other European countries.

The results of the survey also show that Slovak employees are most satisfied with their level of independence at work (84 percent). More than 70 percent of employees here are also happy with their working hours, environment, conditions, and the balance between their work and private lives. The lowest level of satisfaction was in the categories of salary and benefits.

The highest level of satisfaction with salaries (65 percent) and benefits (71 percent) was expressed by employees working for private companies with mixed capital. The lowest levels of satisfaction were recorded among those working for the state administration – with salary only 40 percent and with benefits only 37 percent - and in state-owned firms, where only 37 percent are satisfied with their salaries and 41 percent with the benefits.

The highest levels of dissatisfaction with salaries were found in Romania (70 percent) and Turkey (68 percent), but discontent was also high in countries like France and Italy (both 67 percent).
