Denmark’s worst job

A survey of 16,000 people has found that postal workers are least satisfied with their jobs.

Post Danmark employees named a lack of recognition, meaningless work, a hectic workday and high stress levels as the reasons for their discontent.

Union leaders also pointed to constant fear of layoffs in connection with precipitous drops in mail volume.

The unions praised Post Danmark for making efforts to improve workplaces, but said initiatives such as automatisation and electric bicycles have only added to postal workers’ dissatisfaction.

They said better management would help improve their attitude.
