Better a secure job than a great career

Although the unemployment rate is lower than it has been for a long time, a secure job is the most important thing for German citizens. Good career opportunities, on the other hand, are far down the list of priorities.

A secure and permanent job is most important to Germans – even before nice colleagues and an attractive salary. This was the result of a survey on the quality of work in Germany commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Labor among around 5,000 employees.
