This week in ‘I Hate My Job’ – October 14 2015


Each week in “I Hate My Job,” we bring you insights from the minds of disengaged workers across the Twittersphere. The biggest lessons is that there’s no one reason why people hate their jobs and why they’re disengaged.

Dissatisfaction is driven by personality, life circumstances, day-to-day stresses and much more. This is just a glimpse.

But each week we try to pick out a diverse set that illustrates all the things that turn people off to their workplace and employer. Perhaps they’ll inspire you to take action?

1. If you don’t trust your co-workers to work to the same standards, your own can quickly slip…

2. Time for a move to the four-day working week?

3. There’s that internal motivation making such a difference (Thanks, Mr Pink)

4. “People don’t leave jobs, they leave managers.”

5. No comms = no trust = cynicism = disengagement

6. The head’s convinced but not the heart!

7. Not necessarily a terrible thing if the culture is right, people respect each other and diversity is celebrated

8. Inspiration for the next great Hollywood horror film?
