UK workers are the most uncertain when it comes to job security, according
to a new worldwide poll.
Job confidence in the UK has dropped to a new low in the past eight months,
and has made British workers the most nervous in the world.
The RightCoutts Global Career Confidence Index shows that 29.1 per cent of
UK workers felt it was ‘very likely’ they would be laid off from their current
job within the next 12 months.
This represents a rise of 1.6 per cent on the last survey eight months ago,
and compares to just 5.4 per cent in Norway.
However, UK employees are optimistic about getting another job if they are
made redundant, with 19.7 per cent claiming it would be easy to find a new job.
