Hairdressers Among The Happiest Workers

Britain’s vocational workers — particularly hairdressers — are far more likely than their white-collar counterparts to go to work with a smile on their face and a spring in their step, according to City & Guilds, the UK’s awarding body for work-related qualifications.

According to the 2005 City & Guilds Happiness Index, which is compiled annually to track the satisfaction of the country’s workforce, almost a fifth (18%) of vocational workers are extremely happy with their jobs. This gives their careers 10 out of 10 on the happiness scale, compared to 10% of white-collar workers. Of those who have taken a vocational path, 81% say they have absolutely no regrets — an increase of 10% compared to 2004 figures.
