HR workers the unhappiest employees

 

HR workers are the unhappiest employees in the UK, according to a City and Guilds Career Happiness Index.

The Index claims that despite HR professionals being paid well, these high-pressure jobs don’t provide workers with enough fulfillment and don’t offer enough flexibility.

The full article published in HR Magazine can be found here.

I personally have experienced some of these factors.  Not enough attention to my own career progression.  An expectation of going that extra mile, but with inadequate rewards or recognition for a job well done.

Is your job fulfilling?  What are your experiences of the work that would score well on the Happiness Index?
