Having a job isn’t just about earning a living; it’s about so much more. The advantages of being employed are far reaching, offering more than just a payslip. Along with financial stability, working brings other benefits, such as:

  • Mental wellbeing – work can positively impact our mental health. It provides structure and routine, which can help reduce anxiety or depression. It can boost our self-esteem and overall happiness. Studies have shown that unemployment is associated with higher rates of mental health issues, highlighting the importance of meaningful employment.
  • Social connection – workplaces are hubs of social interaction. Colleagues become friends, and teamwork brings us together. These social connections are essential for mental and emotional well-being, providing support during both challenges at work and personal hardships. Networking opportunities in the workplace can open doors for career advancement and personal growth.
  • Skill development – employment offers continuous opportunities for skill development and career advancement. Through on-the-job training, workshops, or formal education programmes, we can gain new skills and knowledge that not only benefit current roles, but also enhance long-term employability.
  • Contribution to society – as well as the personal benefits, being employed allows us to contribute to society in meaningful ways. Whether in healthcare, retail, education, technology, or any other field, each job plays a part in the functioning of society and has an impact.
