Only 28 per cent of the UK’s workers feel valued by their employers, according to research.
A survey by consultancy Sterry Communications also found that one-fifth of staff did not feel valued at all, while 52 per cent only feel valued sometimes.
The biggest driver for people to stay in their jobs is the fact that they like the people that they work with. Two-thirds (65 per cent) of employees said that this was why they remained working for their current employer.
Pensions remain a major draw for employees, with 40 per cent of respondents citing them as the most popular employee benefit.
Company-funded social events were the least popular benefit with 43 per cent of workers saying that this would be the employee reward that they would least like to receive.
