Women in Hong Kong are unsatisfied with current employers: survey

Less than half of them said they were satisfied.

Recruitment firm Randstad’s latest Workmonitor research report for Q1 2017 revealed that female employees in Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia are the least satisfied with their current employers – and are the least likely to do anything about it.

In Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia an average of 59% of women noted they were satisfied with their current employer, compared to 66% of men who held the same sentiment.

Here's more from Randstad:

In addition, Hong Kong employees were also found to be the least satisfied with their current employer. Only 54% of employees in Hong Kong were happy with their current employer, compared to Singapore (62%), and Malaysia (72%) – the most satisfied of the three countries.

Hong Kong women were found to be the least satisfied group of employees, with less than half (49%) being satisfied with their current jobs.


The Workmonitor research report went on further to find that despite the lower satisfaction held by female employees around their jobs, they were also the least likely to do something about it and start looking for a new job opportunity.

Compared to 35% of men in Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia, only 31% of female employees stated that they are currently looking for a new job.

Employees in Hong Kong in general were also least likely to do something about their job situation. Only 29% of employees in Hong Kong are looking for a new job compared to 35% in Singapore and 36% in Malaysia.
