At Kiwi Recruitment in Chichester, we know that it’s crucial to be happy in your job. Job morale is important and it shouldn’t be pushed under the rug and excused as, “well, nobody really likes their job anyway.” That’s why this World Health Day on the 7th of April, we believe it’s important to examine what it means to be happy in your job and look at the signs that a job isn’t good for you.
2017’s World Health Day concentrates on mental health and we believe that your job happiness can be a factor in your personal wellbeing. Last year, it was reported that job satisfaction was at a two year low as the Chartered Institute of Personal Development, a professional HR body, found that employers failed to engage staff.
When it comes to your career—are you happy?
Your job may sometimes be stressful, which can be normal. A place of work is a second home for most people where you see the same people every day. Unsurprisingly, you may not see eye-to-eye on all topics, which can cause work tension.
However, if you feel a sense of dread most days and are overwhelmed with your tasks, receive little support, unhappy with your pay or feel bullied and excluded from your colleagues, this will no doubt have an effect on your mental wellbeing and it is something you need to address.
At Kiwi Recruitment, we are here to offer a helping hand in your career. If you feel a need to change your career path or want to find a placement that will give your life the right balance, we can help.
“Nobody deserves to be unhappy—or worse, trapped—in their job, no matter who they are or how much work experience they’ve had under their belt,” Brendon Cook, Director of Kiwi Recruitment explained. “Kiwi are committed to help people achieve their career goals by finding a job that is right for them, whether that is full-time, part-time, an internship or temporary work. Our team are dedicated to give candidates the right support and aid them through their job search.”
This World Health Day, stop suffering in silence in a role that is not right for you. Get in touch with a member of our team at Kiwi Recruitment in Chichester and let us know the type of job and hours that will give you the right work/life balance.
