Research conducted by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) shows that productivity levels within Britain's workplaces are being hindered by workers being disillusioned with their roles due to a number of factors.
Many staff may be prompted to switch careers as a result, possibly to roles in sales jobs, as 34 per cent of staff do not enjoy their job at the moment, while 39 per cent say stress levels are too high.
Patrick Woodman, policy and research manager at CMI, said the key to boosting staff retention is to focus on engaging employees.
"Good managers who engage their staff and nurture a shared sense of purpose about their work will get better buy-in from their teams and see real results in the form of improved performance, higher morale and lower staff turnover," he added.
Recent research carried out by Lumesse measuring people's job satisfaction found that UK staff are among the least satisfied on the planet, which could prompt many to consider switching to another role or industry.
