London, Feb 4 (ANI): One in five UK workers fear they could lose their jobs, a survey by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) has claimed.
The BBC quoted the survey report as saying that the figure rises to nearly one in three workers in the public sector.
Over half of the respondents claimed that their employer had either frozen or cut pay.
The CIPD said the quarterly survey has shown the extent of employees' concerns about their standard of living "as inflation continues to erode the real value of wages".
Almost a third of the 2,000 workers surveyed said their standard of living had got worse over the last six months, the report said.
The organisation has urged managers to demonstrate high-quality leadership in order to raise morale and engagement in the workplace.
"If organisations don't invest in developing high-performing managers, they may find better managed competitors racing past on the road to recovery. Employers need to find cost-effective ways of equipping their line managers with the people management skills to support employee engagement and wellbeing," the CIPD's en Willmott, said. (ANI)
