Are marketers really happier in the UK?
Maybe not with everything, but certainly with their co-workers, according to the new 2016-17 UK State of Marketing Work Report, just released today. This report, which surveyed 200 marketers at UK enterprise-level companies, found that UK marketers had a greater affinity for their bosses and co-workers than their U.S. counterparts. They were also a bit more strapped for time to get things done.
These highlights from the report illustrate this:
After email, meetings, and other administrative work, UK marketers have only 36% of their time left for their primary job duties.
When asked what gets in the way of work the most, marketers say wasteful meetings (64%) and excessive emails (61%) are the biggest offenders.
At 42%, offices that are too hot/cold claim the honor of “Most Common Office Pet Peeve.”
