Generous staff would take pay cuts to help bosses

A
quarter of UK professionals are willing to take a pay cut to help out their
employer, a new survey reveals.

Ipsos,
commissioned by HR Gardens, surveyed over 3,000 professionals across Europe and
found that UK employees, more worried about a recession than the rest of
Europe, are willing to find ways to help their business – including taking a
pay cut.

The
survey found that UK professionals are also concerned with the way their
company operates. In all, 90 per cent of those surveyed wanted their company to
play a part in improving society, while 80 per cent said the company they work
for needs to be ethical, friendly and trustworthy.

John
Crozier, CEO of HR Gardens UK, said: “UK employees have proved they are
intelligent and highly principled. They know exactly what they want and, as the
survey indicates, it’s not always money.

“Employers
can be assured of a loyal and caring workforce.”

Almost
half of UK respondents said they do not expect a pay rise in the next year.
