Mature workers in Southeast Asia look for support from employers


In Asia, eight in 10 employees look to depend on the government  (80.9%) and employers (85.5%) to help mature workers remain employed for a longer period of time, per the Randstad Workmonitor quarterly survey.

The study, conducted across Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong (among other regions), with a minimum sample size per country of 400 interviews, found the sentiment resonated with more than half of the employees in other parts of the world surveyed as well.

Noteworthy was that Malaysian respondents ranked the lowest across the region in terms of their expectations from government and employers. At least seven in 10 employees believe that the government (76.1%) and employers (80.8%) should support their employability as they age.

Support may be provided through adequate learning and development programmes by either the government or employers to ensure the long-term employability of Malaysian employees.
