Only 42 per cent satisfied in their jobs - OTC survey

Friday, May 4, 2012

In a job satisfaction survey of visitors to the Houston Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), only 42 per cent said they were 'satisfied' with their current positions.

The survey was carried about by OilCareers.com.

33 per cent of respondents felt that they could be persuaded to change jobs,

25 per cent claimed to be actively looking for work.

'We expected to find a lot of job seekers at OTC this year, but we are surprised at the number of respondents who claimed that they would consider a move if another role provided better prospects," says Mark Guest, managing director of OilCareers.com.

'Employers need to be aware of this if they are going to attract and retain the best industry talent. It is not just about the financial rewards, but the training and development prospects, as well as the potential to grow within an organisation.'
