More than three-quarters of respondents to the Hays Career Outlook Survey rated their happiness at working in the private sector at six or above, with most scoring their happiness at eight.
The poll discovered that 57 per cent of private sphere staff would actively seek a role in the sector if they were starting their career again, while over four-fifths of employees would still encourage today's graduates to seek work in the private sector.
The majority of private sector staff also rate their leadership, support from management and career development opportunities as better than in the public sector, with seven in ten staff rating pride in their work within the sector as six out of ten or above.
Charles Logan, director at Hays, said the survey shows that despite the tough economic times, staff remain "remarkably positive" and proud to be working there.
"This is good news for employers because it means they have a better chance of keeping staff motivated and engaged during what is likely to be a difficult year," he added.
