Recent research from CV-Library has found that the majority of education professionals have fallen out of love with their job.
Over half (51 per cent) confessed that they aren’t happy in their current roles, despite 91.8 per cent believing that it’s important to love what you do.
The survey of over 1,200 workers sought to reveal how professionals felt about their current jobs.
Despite many being unhappy in their roles, the majority (67.2 per cent) of those in the education industry agreed that quitting isn’t always the best solution.
When asked to identify why they dislike their position, respondents cited the: poor company culture (48.4 per cent); not being paid enough (45.2 per cent); and poor work-life balance (38.7 per cent).
Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library, comments: “It’s worrying to learn that so many education professionals are unhappy in their current roles. Job satisfaction plays an important part in keeping staff motivated and productive.
“As an employer, it’s vital that you are able to spot the signs of dissatisfaction or low morale and combat these issues right away. Tackling these early on can help to get staff back on track and start enjoying their work again.”
