Over three quarters of British workers are dissatisfied with their career development progress, according to new research.
A poll of 500 workers revealed that 77 per cent of employees regretted being in their current position.
Boredom was the biggest reason for this, with 35 per cent saying they were bored at work.
Less than a quarter (23 per cent) said they never had any regrets about their careers.
Chris Meredith of officebroker.com, who commissioned the survey, said: "If you are happy in your work and never regret not doing something else then you are the exception rather than the rule. Perhaps surprisingly money isn't the biggest motivator. More people are motivated by job satisfaction than financial factors alone.
Recently, research unveiled by Monster, revealed that 50 per cent of workers are actively looking for new opportunities.
