With Employee Motivation Day
approaching on the 25th of February, Electrical Times
decided to take a closer look at the job satisfaction of UK tradespeople. According to statistics, a third of tradespeople felt motivated to succeed in their career every day, while 70% said that they felt positive about work more than three days a week. This positive work life is also combined with a growth in demand within the construction industry, which is set to grow by 3% a year between 2015-2019, making this the perfect time for skilled professionals to be entering the profession or seeking work.
While job security and availability is no doubt a contributing factor when it comes to job satisfaction, statistics also show that this could come as a result of appealing to the specific personality traits that are possessed by many tradespeople. An example of this, is the 'Captain Questions' character, which refers to workers who enjoy exploring different approaches to work and problem solving. A fifth of workers place themselves in this category, which is why it's highly likely that a career as an electrician
would appeal to these types of workers.
Requiring thorough attention, along with the ability to identify the best course of action, a career as an electrical engineer is an excellent choice for job satisfaction, due to the fact that it presents constant challenges and problem solving opportunities. It also provides individuals with a choice as to how they would like to work, granting them the opportunity to work independently in terms of residential operations, and also to work as part of a team in larger projects such as commercial developments.
