Have you ever found yourself at every morning, afraid to come to the office? Have you ever thought about hours during the day waiting for it to complete? Then you had a pathetic job that may have left You deeply cynical, with no motivation to apply or do good.
What does it mean when someone tells you they have a bad job?
There are many reasons why they may feel less satisfied with their role.
This can leave them physically exhausted or offer a low salary.
But there are less obvious reasons why people might be unhappy.
Let’s say you find a job in a sector you’ve always dreamed of, or find a job with an attractive salary. Neither that, nor another does not guarantee job satisfaction.
This has nothing to do with the name of the job or the sector where the doctor can be unhappy as a Builder. A professional athlete can be disappointed as an amusement Park designer. A rich Executive can be deeply unhappy in his or her job, while a waiter serving your lunch can find his or her job very rewarding.
Costs for Companies
Being so miserable in your job obviously has a personal cost to your overall well-being. What is not as clear as day is the high cost for companies.
There are many studies that show the negative impact of dissatisfied employees on company performance. When an employee becomes less and less engaged in their work, they are less likely to succeed and the employee and the company will suffer.
Not only will the suffering and cynicism of an unhappy employee seep into their home life, affecting their partner and children. Those same people are more likely to face difficulties in fulfilling other social responsibilities, such as caring for loved ones and participating in society as a whole.
If we want to solve the problem of suffering at work, we must first understand what causes suffering at work.
