Public sector is the place to work despite increased stress
25 January 2012
Workers within the commercial sector are happy and proud, despite 70% seeing an increase in stress levels in the last year.
The Hays’s Career Outlook Survey suggests that, when asked to rate the level of pride and happiness out of ten, 71% of private sector workers rated their pride in their work as 6 or above, while 76% rated their happiness at work as 6 or above – 24% marking their happiness as 8.
There is no surprise that 67% of employers aren’t worried about retention issues within the sector.
Hays revealed: "The survey shows that despite the tough times faced by the private sector, staff remain positive and proud to be working there. This is good news for employers because it means they have a better chance of keeping staff motivated and engaged during what is likely to be a difficult year."
Borer's FUSION Flexitime System can cut overheads and reduce management time
With a high number of staff, using Borer's FUSION Time Recording System will help reduce management involvement and the administrative effort required to manage a time management scheme.
It is labour intensive to manage and maintain a centrally administered or paper based flexitime system. Invariably, queries arise in relation to flexi balances and the process can become a very complicated one, particularly for the HR department.
Implementing an automated time and attendance system makes things very trouble free for both employees and their managers alike.
