Employees realizing their full potential in Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia

54

Engaged employees are the ones that can drive the success of a business, and are also least likely to leave. The feeling of realizing your full potential play a large part of being engaged and 74% of employees around the globe state they are doing just that in their current job. This sentiment was much higher in Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia with 83% of employees stating that they are realizing their full potential.

Singapore

Surpassing the global average of 74%, 81% of employees in Singapore felt that they were realizing their full potential in their current roles. Men were slightly more fulfilled than women by three percent, while more senior employees, aged 35 to 54 were two percent more fulfilled than their younger counterparts, aged 18 to 34.

Hong Kong

With the closest sentiment compared to the global average, 79% of Hong Kong employees felt their potentials were being reached in their roles. This sentiment was similar across all demographics.

Malaysia

Malaysian employees were the most satisfied with almost nine in ten (89%) feeling that they were realizing their potential in their roles. Interestingly, showing an opposite demographic trend to that of Singapore, female and younger employees felt the most fulfilled.

Michael Smith, Managing Director, Randstad, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia noted, “The results look very encouraging with over eight in ten employees across Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia feeling that they are realizing their full potential in their roles. However, while these results look positive, statistics also show that slightly over nine in ten feel that they need more training to stay up to date with their skills. This shows that while employees feel they are maximising their current skillsets, they are quickly understanding that more needs to be done to ensure they stay relevant. Organisations need to ensure that they are doing as much as possible to expand the skillsets of their workforce or they risk losing their best talent.”
