More than 2 in 5 Hongkongers scared of losing their job seek career shift
This marks a 9% rise from the survey in 2021.
More than two in five employees are eyeing to change their jobs in the first half of 2022 due to fear of losing their work, according to a recent study from human resources services firm, Randstad, showed.
This marked a 9% increase compared to its 2021 study, as revealed in the 2022 Employer Brand Research.
Also, 26% of employees who are not afraid of losing their jobs are intending to move to another employer, which is an 8% increase compared to the study conducted a year ago.
More than one in five respondents also switched to another employer between July and December last year with their top reasons being work and life balance, salary and benefits, and financial state of their firm.
Randstad pointed out that employees are seeking a healthier work-life balance and are willing to change jobs to find it.
According to Natellie Sun, managing director of Randstad’s search & selection in Greater China, employers must implement proper training initiatives to upskill their employees, who are stressed due to the changing business environment driven by digitalisation amidst the pandemic.
The study polled 3,027 who are based in Hong Kong SAR in January 2022.
