WHAT UK WORKERS ARE REALLY THINKING - ACCORDING TO GOOGLE
March 17th, 2017.



UK workers are more likely to trust Google with their work worries than their colleagues.


Common search queries, such as ‘My colleagues are racist’, ‘My colleagues are idiots’, ‘Someone I work with has bed bugs’, ‘My job kills my soul’ range from funny, to worryingly depressing.

There are 2.4 million Google searches for the term ‘job search’ each year – that’s 273 an hour – and a significant peak in January, in which you can read more about on DPG’s blog.

They discovered that a number of searches were things that could be discussed with HR departments, but we now trust Google in some instances more than our partner, so perhaps it is becoming natural to turn to Google for workplace issues.

Despite initial results seeming light-hearted, the majority of searches were extremely negative, suggesting an air of desperation in UK workplaces.
