The results revealed that in most sectors where the level of professional pride was below the national average, employees spent fewer hours at work.

Mike Beresford, managing director of Randstad Technologies, explained: “No one wants to go to work each day without feeling proud of their careers – and the research proves that employees who fall into this category often spend less time each week at work. A good sense of professional pride isn’t just good for employees – it’s good for business.”

In a survey of over 2,000 British workers, it turns out those working in insurance felt the most proud of their profession – a whopping 90 per sent in fact.
