It’s rush hour on any given weekday and millions of professionals are making their way to work in Singapore. Some are traveling by MRT, others by car, bus or ride share. Considering these millions of professionals, a very important question comes up: how happy is the workforce in Singapore on their way to work?
To be fair, the word “happy” can be subjective. Given the choice, would anyone voluntarily be going to work versus, say, on their way to an exotic beach resort in Bali? Perhaps the question is less about happiness and more about job satisfaction. And when it comes to job satisfaction, what are some of the factors that can make us more or less satisfied?
This question is becoming increasingly important in the workplace, so we surveyed 1,328 professionals in Singapore at all job levels to hear: what are some of the aspects of work that make people happy…or not? And how do those factors contribute to an overall feeling of job satisfaction and workplace happiness?
This is what we found.
