UK Ranks Lowest In Workplace Happiness

Coworking operator Mindspace revealed the UK findings of its global work culture survey, which surveyed 1,000 employees across the UK. 

The survey found that nearly one-quarter of British workers are unhappy, placing the UK at the bottom in terms of workplace happiness. UK workers rated 73% on the report’s happiness index, compared to Germany’s 81% and 93% in the U.S.

Additionally, the survey found that 24% of UK workers were unhappy with their job situations, and 40% of respondents lacked workplace flexibility. Furthermore, 25% said they do not feel valued in their workplace.

The authors of the survey found that there is a lot of room for improvement for UK employers. 45% of employers offered no workplace wellness activities at all, compared to 13% of employers in the U.S.

“This survey should be an eye-opener for UK workplaces, especially given its sheer extent and depth,” said Dan Zakai, CEO and co-founder of Mindspace. “We have discovered that employee happiness is a hugely significant factor for every UK business, with employee engagement rates double the size of those who aren’t happy at work. We believe that employee happiness in the workplace should be a focal element for businesses as happier employees mean better retention rates, greater engagement and a more collaborative work environment.”
