More than 7 in 10 Singapore workers happy: Survey
They say they are content with their hours, workload and prospects
Many people grumble about their jobs but it seems most Singapore employees are satisfied with their lot and will probably stick with their employer for a few more years at least.
In a new survey, more than 70 per cent of the respondents said they are happy with their working hours and workload, as well as their career prospects and development.
Findings also indicate respondents are likely to stay in their jobs for five more years on average.
Age is one determining factor. Respondents aged 15 to 29 said they are likely to stay at least three more years, while those aged 40 or older will probably stay for at least seven more years, taking retirement into account.
WEIGHING WHAT EMPLOYEES WANT
Higher pay and challenging work are something employers can work on.
