SINGAPORE - Employees in Singapore are among the least satisfied in the Asia-Pacific region, according to a new survey by recruitment firm Randstad.

Its survey of 5,670 Singapore workers found that nearly half - 46 per cent - do not like their jobs, while three-quarters see their job as nothing more than a way to put food on the table.

This could be because of Singapore's rising cost of living, suggested Mr Michael Smith, Randstad's country director for Singapore.

"However, it is important that they look beyond remuneration and also consider job satisfaction, career progression opportunities, and a pleasant working atmosphere when making decisions about their future employment," he said in a press release on Tuesday.
