70% of Singapore's female staff will stop working if they can

There might be more female leaders in Singapore but did you know that 69% of Singapore's female workers only work out of necessity? This was a key finding in JobStreet.com’s "Women in the Workplace Study", which involved 480 female respondents in Singapore.

The survey also pointed out that 70% of these women would happily give up working if they had the financial means to do so.

This was because most of these working women are concerned that they are missing out on their families’ everyday lives. Three in four working mothers have revealed that they spent less than 10 hours with their children during a workweek.
