Published: Tuesday, 08 January 2008   Category: Graduate Job sector Reports

A third of workers in the UK think that their happiness at work could be improved, according to a new report.

The research, from technology company HP, also shows that over half of employees in Britain believe working flexibly would improve their happiness at work.

Alexander Kjerulf, who describes himself as an independent happiness officer is working alongside HP to find a way to make offices happier places. He said: "When companies are faced with issues such as low staff motivation, high absenteeism, increased staff turnover and a residual resistance to change, they can react by offering their staff monetary incentives such as bonuses or a pay rise."

According to the research, almost half of workers think that filling out less forms and doing less administration work would make them happier in their jobs.

HP is a technology solutions provider to consumers, businesses and institutions across the world.
