Public sector far happier than private
PRIVATE sector workers in Ireland are unhappy compared to their public sector counterparts, new research claims.
Younger workers are also less content than middle-aged employees, according to the Coyne Research survey of 1,000 adults, commissioned by Dublin-based recruitment company Eden Recruitment.
However, the research also suggests that workers are more satisfied now than they were in 2017.
Overall, six out of 10 say that they are happy in the workplace, with 20 per cent claiming to be unhappy. Among those surveyed, the over-55s were the most contented, while 65 per cent of public sector workers claimed to be happy at work, compared to 58 per cent in the private sector.
