UK workers declare job location to be more important than wage

digital-focused economy

An online survey conducted by OnePoll on behalf of ClickSoftware has found that job location is on average the most important factor for why UK workers stay in their current job role (57%), ahead of both wages (52%) and job security (33%). The UK survey, which looked at factors affecting job performance, found that 20% of people believe their productivity at work has been negatively affected by the location of their job. This increases further in the capital, with over a quarter of Londoners feeling that their productivity would suffer by working in an unpleasant location. Within the UK, employees in the South-East value the location of their job more than anyone else in the country. Young professionals are by far the most affected by the location of their work, with 24% of 25 to 34 year olds admitting that their productivity is likely to be affected by a horrible location. Over two-thirds of respondents revealed they have either considered leaving or actually left a job at least in part for a change of scenery.
