Managers Resolve to Chase Pay and Promotion in 2006


Promotion and pay rises top managers' wish lists for 2006, a new poll has found.

The survey by PTP Training & Marketing found that over half the 300 managers questioned (54%) had made work related New Year’s resolutions to improve their working lives.

Almost a third (30%) wanted to ‘be promoted’, ‘get a pay rise’ or ‘get another job’ in 2006, while 50% of them will be putting the focus on ‘getting a better work/life balance’ and on ‘improving their health’ and ‘reducing stress levels’.

Although there were plans made by a number of respondents to walk or cycle to work and to go to a gym after work - the Friday lunchtime drink in the pub was one area respondents refuse to give up in the name of good health! Other resolutions included ‘retirement’, ‘increasing sales’, ‘improving performance’ and ‘being more organised at work’.

The survey also found that over a third (34%) of workers admitted to slowing down in the festive month and being less productive in December.

Of those who were less productive, just under two thirds (64%) said their work level dropped by up to 20% while one in five said it dropped by up to 40%. However 10% claimed that their work rate was down by 80% in the run up to Christmas.
