A new survey has revealed some of the happiest workers and the industries they work in.
Questioning 2,000 professionals across the UK, the CV-Library research found the top 10 sectors with the happiest people:
- Sales (72.7%)
- Automotive (70.7%)
- Recruitment (70%)
- Design (69.2%)
- Retail (67.6%)
- IT (66.7%)
- Marketing (63.6%)
- Finance (61.7%)
- Customer service (60.8%)
- Property (60%)
Lee Biggins, founder and CEO of CV-Library commented, “At a time where it’s harder to recruit than ever before, it’s fantastic to see that the majority of professionals still feel happy on a daily basis. The findings got me thinking about an article I read once which really resonated with me: it said that success isn’t the key to happiness, it’s happiness that’s the key to success. I agree that feeling good in ourselves makes it easier to achieve our goals, whether that’s in our personal or professional lives.”
Biggins added, “While our findings are largely positive, it’s important to remember that no-one can be happy all the time. Being able to make the most of the good times and cope effectively when life does get tough is crucial. If you are struggling, it’s important to not only seek professional help or talk to your loved ones, but also to really consider what’s making you unhappy. Make a list and try to think of solutions: maybe it’s time to find a new job, start a new hobby, or even take some time out to think about your goals.”
