ABOUT nine percent of Slovaks plan to quit their job and 38 percent are considering doing so, according to Obchod magazine.
The findings were the result of a Barometer of Satisfaction and Motivation conducted by Accor Services.
The majority of managers, 64 percent, responded that they were satisfied with their position. The least satisfied were employees of domestically owned private companies, where every tenth person plans to leave their job and almost half, 43 percent, are reviewing job offers.
The countries with the lowest number of people considering changing their job are Turkey, Belgium and the Czech Republic. Romania has the highest number.
The poll also revealed that 37 percent of Slovaks think of their job as routine, 18 percent associate it with positive feelings, and 13 percent associate it with certainty. However, 30 percent of managers said their work evokes positive feelings. More than half of employees in foreign-owned private companies, 51 percent, called their work routine. Romanians associated their work with positive feelings the most.
