Job satisfaction falls to lowest level for two years

Job satisfaction has fallen to its lowest level in more than two years, according to a new study.

A survey of 2,000 workers by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development found that more than one in four were unhappy with opportunities to develop their skills or further their career.

Organisations were urged to rethink their approach to employee career management, in order to engage and retain staff.

Job satisfaction has fallen across all sectors, but particularly in the private sector, the study found.

Claire McCartney of the CIPD, said: "Today's research shows that our approaches to job design and career management have not kept pace with the rapidly changing world of work or with employee expectations."
