One in three workers are ‘coasting’ through their jobs and most say it’s because they don’t care, poll suggests
- A third of workers coast through their jobs making little effort, a report claims
- The poll said there were 10million employees trying to avoid hard work
- More than half of those taking it easy said their jobs meant little to them
- Only a third were happy in their posts, the poll by Barnett Waddingham claimed
A third of workers are coasting through their jobs, making little effort and believing they have nothing to aim for, according to a report yesterday.
It said there were 10million employees trying to avoid hard work at a time when the country is faced with a damaging failure to improve productivity.
More than half of those said to be taking it easy at work said their jobs meant little to them and only a third were happy in their posts, according to a poll for pensions consultancy Barnett Waddingham.
It called on companies to improve the workrate of employees and cut their own costs by trying to make their workers happier.
The Why BWell report, based on a survey of 3,000 employees carried out by OnePoll, said 55 per cent were positive about their performance at work, 32 per cent said they were coasting, and a further 7 per cent described themselves as struggling.
Consultant Laura Matthews said ‘coasters’ were ‘not lazy or unambitious people, but often those lacking purpose or confidence in their ability to add value’.
