Workplace Pride Linked to Seniority and Skills


Skilled senior staff are more likely to feel pride in their workplace than untrained or manual workers, a study claims.

Two thirds of Directors and Managing Directors described themselves as “very proud” of where they worked, yet only 7% of unskilled employees felt so contented. Almost two thirds (63%) of manual workers are not at all proud of their workplace.

Job satisfaction varied both geographically and by sector. Employees in the South West of England reported the highest levels of pleasure in their work situation, with 40% claiming to be “very proud”. Almost a third (29%) of staff in Scotland felt no pride in their organisation.

Professional services and the media came top for workplace fulfilment, with the travel and transport sector rating lowest.

Gary Browning, CEO of Penna plc, said: “Being proud of where you work and who you work for is an important component in ensuring a meaningful work existence. If employees lack pride it is likely that motivation and commitment will also be low, impacting on an organisation’s productivity and potential.”
