Most happy in private sector, with stress included

Have your say

PRIVATE sector employees are proud to work in the commercial sector despite rising stress levels, says a new survey.

The Hays Career Outlook Survey shows that 57 per cent say they would actively seek a role in the private sector if they were starting their career again.

They also rate the leadership, support from management and career development opportunities as better than in the public sector.

But 70 per cent of the people surveyed admitted the sector is more stressful than a year ago.

Charles Logan, director at Hays, said: “The survey shows that despite the tough times faced by the private sector, staff remain remarkably positive and proud to be working there.”

Two-thirds of employers do not see staff retention as an issue.
