SINGAPORE: Software firm Slack’s latest Leadership and the War for Talent report found that one in two Singaporean workers are experiencing burn out over the last 12 months. The report also revealed that 16% of those surveyed admit to “quiet quitting" at work.
The report polled 1,000 workers and found that two in three workers also want to “experience more meaning from their job or feel they’re making a bigger impact”.
“The reality is that many Singaporean professionals are burnt out. Leaders have an obligation to address this – not least for the wellbeing of their employees, but also to drive the productivity of their organisations," Shweta Verma, country manager for Slack, Singapore said.
“As we continue to go through one of the biggest workplace experiments of the century –moving from physical offices to digital headquarters – it’s critical that employers demonstrate sound, positive leadership.
"By harnessing collaborative technology at scale, and engaging employees in ways that best suit them, leaders can help drive productivity and a happier, more engaged workforce."
Apart from teamwork and collaboration, respondents also identified transparent and trustworthy leadership, flexible work, and employee well-being as some of the biggest factors driving a company’s success.
