‘Poor morale’ in pub­lic sec­tor work­ing

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk & World Update -

PUB­LIC sec­tor work­ers fac­ing pay cuts are be­com­ing dis­il­lu­sioned and are pre­pared to sac­ri­fice their pen­sion for a job in a pri­vate firm, ac­cord­ing to new re­search. A sur­vey of al­most 1,400 em­ploy­ees showed that just over half of those in the pub­lic sec­tor would con­sider giv­ing up their pen­sion for a ca­reer else­where. Re­cruit­ment firm Hays said the pull of pri­vate com­pa­nies and their per­ceived higher job se­cu­rity was at­trac­tive to work­ers in the pub­lic sec­tor, which has been hit this year by in­dus­trial un­rest over the Govern­ment con­tro­ver­sial pen­sion re­forms. A sep­a­rate poll of al­most 1,000 em­ploy­ers found that most were wor­ried about re­tain­ing skilled work­ers.
