The economic slowdown and policy paralysis, it seems, have failed to dampen the job enthusiasm of young Indians.

According to a survey by Monster Worldwide and independent global market research firm Gfk, Indians are most satisfied with their jobs globally and nearly one in every five Indian is even willing to work for free. What’s more, those in the medium-level pay bracket are happier than those with fat salary bags.

The survey interviewed 8,000 workers across seven countries.

With 55% of its workers showing intense love for their jobs, India has secured the third position in international happiness ranking, just behind Canada where 64% of workers are satisfied with their jobs and the Netherlands with 57%.

In fact, only 5% of Indian workers said they actively dislike their jobs though none said he hates his job, the lowest percentage among all countries surveyed.

Moreover, about 60% of those with middle incomes said they love their jobs against 52% high earners who said the same about their jobs.

“The research findings are a reflection of prevailing business scenario and employee/worker mind-set where they want to be safe and not take any risks,” said Sanjay Modi, managing director, India/West Asia/South East Asia, Monster.com.
