Many of us are far from satisfied at work. Average job satisfaction levels in the UK stand at 63% with 6 million workers experiencing regular low points during the day. Sadly most of us are chained to desk work to pay our bills with 70% saying financial issues would prevent them from taking time out to pursue other interests.
The day job may pay the bills but it can also be tiresome and for a lot of people, it isn't really what they want to be doing. Sound familiar? If so you'll be pleased to know that we're hosting a live webchat with Olympic champion and Vodafone Foundation sports advisor Matthew Pinsent who has a lot of advice to offer about boosting your job satisfaction levels.
He'll be talking about what it is that drags us down day to day and will be giving us some positive guidance on what we can do about it. He'll also be talking about a new initiative launching in the UK called World of Difference (WoD). The initiative is totally unique and offers 4 lucky people the chance to put their job on hold for a year and devote their time to charity. The really good news is whilst doing so they will receive a pay packet of up to up to a £25k and up to £20k to cover expenses!
Based on a model which was initially developed by the Vodafone New Zealand Foundation in 2002, WoD has been rolled out in Australia, The Netherlands, Ireland and now finally in the UK. If you fancy being one of the lucky 4 to work for their favorite charity or simply want to know what else you can do to boost your job satisfaction, log-on to our live webchat and submit your questions to Matthew.
