35 a magic number

MORE Australian workers are happy with their jobs, Leadership Management Australia has revealed.

Six in 10 respondents told the 2003 Leadership, Employment and Direction Survey they were ‘OK’ with their jobs, up from last year’s 50 per cent.

Support for a 35-hour working week was also up, with more than 70 per cent of senior managers, business leaders and employees saying this would have either a positive or neutral impact on productivity.

On the negative side, job insecurity loomed as a significant issue, LMA said.

Forty per cent of senior managers listed this as a top-five pressure, as opposed to 12 per cent in the previous survey. Job security, advancement and development opportunities were not talked about often enough, 82 per cent of all employees said.
