The number of unemployed in Germany has fallen so far that some experts attribute to the word “full employment” in the mouth. Apart from the fact that the remaining job-seekers can buy from those statistics, literally, little, is it worth it given this number to ask some questions to the world of work re: what is the relationship of the German people to their work? What drives you? What do you think of their bosses? The opportunity to work part-time is, now particularly important? The young think differently than the Older? In short: What has the workers, with a view to 2019? The infas Institute for applied social science in the order of TIME has been questioned in a representative survey of around 1,000 employed people in Germany: workers as employees, self-employed persons such as apprentices, older and young, across all occupational groups. The survey “questions of the year” took place from July to September, 2018 by means of “computer-aided telephone Interviews” – the more results you will find in the PDF of the study.

Also: How relevant are the issues for people are, the extent to which they feel themselves affected – in the private environment, in the operation? Or it may be “the media” making things bigger than it is? “It depends” – so the lapidary, in Detail, but highly exciting answer.
What if you wanted to designate one aspect, the superior knowledge? Work no longer seems to be for the vast majority of people mainly a place where you have to earn money. Rather, the workplace has become a social place where people meet together to move things forward: in all the above options more than 80 percent of the people is most important, that you feel “at work”. Satisfied with the implementation of this need only” a good 60 percent, by contrast, are “. What do you call it? Complaining on quite a high level!
Let me at home alone! This article dates from the TIME no 50/2018. Here you can read the entire issue.
Sunday evening, a cursory glance at the Smartphone: 28 new mail, 19 of them from colleagues or from the boss. Read? Answers? Forward? In any case: upset! “No work contacts in the leisure” was the name of the corresponding Position in our survey, and it shows that this topic plays a far bigger role than a lot of other things: 60 percent of the workforce, it is important to be in their free time are not bothered. This message seems to be, however, when the companies arrived. The gap between “important” and “satisfied” is not great. However, if you look at the 25 – to 34-Year-olds, it is clear that this Generation is already more dissatisfied than the average. In this age group, the theme of the Infas reference is made-experts are clearly in the area of “New priorities”, that is to say: Here there is a need for action. So better: the Mails in the drafts folder – and not until Monday morning to submit.
I don’t want a Sabbatical!
These young people! Talk more about part-time, home office and Sabbatical leave as salary and opportunities for advancement. Really? Nothing from this Hypothesis is supported by the survey – quite the opposite. Also, for the under 35-Year-old the safety and future viability of your work in the foreground – even before the overall favorite of “Wellbeing at work”. “Time-outs”, the “flexible switching between Full – and part-time” is cut off in the bottom half of the importance scale. If you look at how the respondents rate the handling of the employer with the topic, shows that only about 30 percent of the Younger are “very satisfied”. Sabbaticals are therefore (also) in the case of the young not a big issue, however, you wish for a greater openness of the companies. “Keep in mind, although not a high priority”, it is recommended, therefore, the Infas-social researchers and employers.
