Enterprising Britons Want to Help Drive Growth of UK Economy
Submitted by: Star One Public Relations
London, UK (OPENPRESS) October 8, 2011 -- New research from careers advice and training courses provider oneworklife.com has found that nearly 1 in 5 (18%) UK workers want to start their own business, backing the government's call to entrepreneurs to kick start the economy.
The survey of over 2000 full and part-time employees highlights the East of the country as top for budding entrepreneurs, with a quarter of those in the East Midland and East Anglia wanting to take the leap and go it alone.
The desire to change career appears to come from a number of workers being stuck in dead-end jobs, or working for people they simply don't like. One in ten workers say they hate their boss, with one if five actually hating their job. Bosses in the West Midlands obviously need to change some bad habits, as one in six workers say they hate their boss. And a massive 26% of workers in Northern Ireland say they hate their job.
"These figures should be a real eye-opener for companies across the country," commented Trevor Field of oneworklife.com. "I'm sure the Government will be delighted to see that there are so many people keen to set up their own businesses and drive this economy forward. But if bosses don't watch out, their disgruntled workers will turn into their competitors."
Oneworklife.com launched earlier this year, and has already seen large numbers of people approach them, looking to retrain and upskill, as well as learn what it takes to run your own business.
Trevor Field said, "It's a great feeling when people have great ideas for their future and their business, and you make it happen."
