Brits given more work for no extra pay

Salary is the top priority for workers in the UK, with 62% of people saying it’s the most crucial factor in a job. But despite the high priority given to salary, almost half (45%) of British workers are unsatisfied due to increased responsibility without the pay to match.

According to European data, British workers are least likely to be happy with anything other than a pay increase.

However, if workers can’t get a pay increase, they want alternative benefits such as a one-off payment to help with the cost of living (36%), additional days of annual leave/paid time off (34%), and grocery/shopping vouchers (32%).

Aston spoke to Sirsha Haldar, general manager at ADP UK & Ireland.
