Workers in India are the world’s most committed with 50% of the workforce describing themselves as being totally committed to their job, according to a survey from Kelly Services. The highest levels of employee commitment following India are Indonesia (43%) and Malaysia (34%).
The lowest levels of commitment, according to the Employee Engagement and Retention survey, were found in Hong Kong (15%), Thailand (20%), and Singapore (22%).
Kamal Karanth, Managing Director of Kelly Services India, said: “There is a big challenge for employers in managing the on-boarding of new recruits so that they are producing and integrated well into the organisation. Simply changing jobs does not make for contented employees, and a big factor is the way managers and supervisors handle the transition.”
The report also revealed that across the Asia-Pacific region, an average of 64% of those who had changed jobs in the past 12 months were happy in their new positions. In comparison, 75% of Indian employees were happy with their jobs.
According to the report, a key indicator of employee satisfaction is the willingness of an employee to recommend their employer as a preferred place of work. Approximately 28% of those in the APAC region would recommend their employer to friends.
An estimated 38% feel that personal fulfilment is the key factor in influencing their job choice, followed by opportunities for advancement at 29%. Compensation or employee benefits ranked as the third most important factor with 26%.
