Jobs Get Low Appraisal

Russians showed the lowest satisfaction among their BRIC peers in a recent survey on the job environment.

In a poll conducted by Paris-based Ipsos for Reuters, 41 percent of Russians agreed with the statement that "overall, my current workplace is a psychologically safe and healthy environment to work in." That compared with 57 percent of respondents in India, 54 percent in China and 52 percent in Brazil. Thirty-six percent of Russians disagreed with the statement. That figure was 17 percent in India and Brazil and 15 percent in China.

The poll was conducted online between Dec. 6-19 last year among just over 500 Russians. Ipsos said an unweighted 500-person sample has a margin of error of 4.5 percent.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
