Research carried out by Lifetime revealed that 68 per cent of workers have set a work-related New Year's resolution for 2012, with 20 per cent hoping to change their current career, driven by the desire for a better work/life balance.
Nigel Wallace, development director at Lifetime, told the Daily Telegraph that although the economic climate is tough, the nation's workers are working harder than ever, which highlights the importance of pursuing a career that not only motivates but inspires people.
The study showed that some 40 per cent of workers do not take a lunch break and a similar proportion work an extra five hours per week in addition to their paid hours.
"Whether it is taking the time to switch off from work via a hobby, retraining or moving jobs, the start of the year is the perfect time to consider your options," Mr Wallace added.
