Almost a third (31 percent) of UK professionals believe their expectations are “not being met at all” by their current employer, a new study has found.

Research undertaken by recruiter Robert Walters and job board CV-Library has been compiled in a report which also found that a further 24 percent state that their needs are only just ‘moderately’ being met at work.

The dissatisfaction was most prominent in the Wales (70 percent), South West (68 percent), Scotland (67 percent), Yorkshire & Humber (64 percent), and the West Midlands (60 percent) where workers claim that employers were falling short of meeting their professional and personal aspirations.

Industries with the least satisfied employees are in Secretarial & Business Support (47 percent), Retail (34 percent), Manufacturing & Engineering (34 percent), and Health (32 percent).

Chris Hickey, CEO at Robert Walters said: “With Brexit on the horizon and a challenging time ahead, it is important now more than ever that employers retain top talent – central to this is keeping staff happy and motivated.

“Given that 55 percent of professionals claim that their employer is failing to meet their career expectations, it is concerning how slow companies are to act towards better understanding their employees’ needs.”
