Singapore’s employers have received a mixed report card, with slightly more than one-third (37%) of employees saying that their bosses have done a good job in preparing them for future success.
According to the Kelly Global Workforce Index, only 38% of employees are satisfied with management’s leadership style, and just half would be willing to recommend their current employer to a friend or acquaintance.
When asked to rate their bosses, Singapore’s employees delivered just a passing grade for their performance, with a score of 6.5 out of 10. This total was slightly more than China (6.4) and Hong Kong (5.8) but less than the rest of Asia Pacific surveyed, including India (7.0), Thailand (6.9), Indonesia (6.8), and Malaysia (6.7).
Also, less than half (46%) of Singapore respondents said their efforts at work were recognised and rewarded – the lowest figure for the Asia Pacific region.
“Employees’ views of an organisation carry a lot of credibility and send a clear signal about how people are managed and the best places to work,” said Melissa Norman, Managing Director – Malaysia, Kelly Services. “They have a significant impact on the ability of a business to attract and retain talent.”
