Are you working hard enough?
26 October 2018
Work is tough enough without hating the people you work with! However, new research has revealed that nearly half (47.5%) of accountants ‘dislike’ or find their co-workers ‘frustrating’.
The worry is that many fellow accountants are seen as just plain lazy - some two-thirds of respondents claimed their colleagues just don’t work hard enough, with a further 89% stating this impacts on how they feel about their jobs.
That all means that 41% of accountants believe their workplace has a negative atmosphere.
Differences in salaries is also stoking the fires of disconnect. Some one in eight accountants told researchers that they discuss their salaries with colleagues. But, 60% admit they become jealous if they don’t earn as much, or if their co-worker receives a pay rise.
