Financial & Non-Financial Methods of Motivation | Britain's Best and Worst Jobs
If you want to feel properly rewarded at work, be an cruise ship captain, fitness instructor decorator. Don't want rewarding work? Then try working in a call centre or bar.
The results of a fascinating and in-depth study on happiness at work are reported here in the Guardian and the article (and research) is business gold dust for learning more about how employees can feel valued in their work.
The research involved a sample of 210,000 people working in the UK. It looked into UK employees’ “full earnings”, which tries to account for wellbeing at work as well as cash income
The result is a list of jobs where the reality of the working day undermines the benefit of salary and those that offer the greatest rewards in addition to salary.
The research paper itself is an incredibly derailed and complex document. Not really worth much time. Stick to the Guardian article to draw out the key learning!
