Singapore Workers Are An Unhappy Bunch

Singapore is synonymous with a first-rate quality of life with its low crime rates, superior infrastructure and impeccable cleanliness – but employees in Southeast Asia’s wealthy island nation are among the region’s least satisfied.

Almost half of employees in Singapore do not think they have the perfect job, with three-quarters viewing their job only as a way to make a living and nothing more, according to a survey by global recruitment firm Randstad Workmonitor published on Tuesday.

Singapore ranks second in Asia Pacific, behind Japan, with the number of employees dissatisfied in their current jobs.

Given Singapore’s rising cost of living it’s not surprising that many of city-state’s workforce view their jobs solely as a means to put food on the table, said Michael Smith, country director of Randstad Singapore.
