Pub­lic sec­tor far hap­pier than pri­vate

The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - NEWS -

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.
