Canadian executives are overwhelmingly passionate about their jobs.

A recent survey by the Queen’s School of Business at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ont., found 96 per cent of 400 executives love their jobs.

“I was somewhat surprised that so many actually do love their jobs,” said Julian Barling, professor of business and psychology at the business school. “If you ask 400 people in lower levels of the organization, would you get the same findings? Probably not.”
