A research of the Swedish company Universum showed that Czechs are among the happiest workers on Earth. They were ninth between Greece, who was eighth, and tenth-place Russia on the global chart. The Czechs were the strongest in employee loyalty because they don’t leave their jobs very often. Belgium was first in this study, Norway came in second and Costa Rica was third. The researchers in this global study asked about two hundred thousand employees questions about how they feel at about work. They asked mainly about job satisfaction, loyalty to the company, and if employees would recommend their employer to others.
“The Czech Republic was among the top ten countries with the happiest workers. From all the areas, Czechs are the strongest in not wanting to change their job soon,” explained Universum regional manager Tomáš Rašner. For example, the study showed that there is no direct connection between a country’s wealth and the satisfaction of its employees. It also showed a new trend of employees changing companies more often. More and more people want to change their employer and try different types of work. But for employers, it is very important that their workers are satisfied and stay a long time. That is why loyal Czech employees are ideal workers for local companies.
Difficult words: among: in the middle of, research: a detailed study of a subject to find new information, loyalty: quality of being strong and not changing in support or friendship, satisfaction (satisfied): a nice feeling that you get when you have what you wanted, recommend: to say that someone or something would be good, wealth: being rich
According to the research of the Swedish company Universum, Czechs are among the happiest workers on Earth. They ranked an impressive ninth place between eighth-place Greece and tenth-place Russia on the global chart. Czechs were the strongest in employee loyalty, because most people don’t have a tendency to leave their jobs. The highest- ranking country in this study was Belgium, with Norway coming in second and Costa Rica third. The researchers in this global research asked about two hundred fifty thousand workers questions about how they feel about work. They focused mainly on job satisfaction, the probability that employees would recommend their current employer to others, and employee loyalty.
“The Czech Republic ranked among the top ten countries with the happiest workers. From the three areas evaluated in this chart – loyalty, satisfaction and recommendation – Czechs are the strongest in willingness not to change their job in the near future,” explained Universum regional manager Tomáš Rašner. The study discovered, for example, that there is no direct correlation between economic wealth and employee satisfaction or the growing trend of migrating from one company to another. There is a growing tendency for employees to change their employer and try different types of work. However, it is key for companies that their workers are satisfied and remain on the job a long time. In this respect, thanks to their loyalty, Czech employees are ideal workers for local companies.
