Singapore among top 5 countries with highest percentage of adults in good jobs

According to the 2018 Global Great Jobs Briefing by Gallup, Singapore leads Asia in adult full-time employment for an employer, with 48% of adults having this type of work. Following in second place is Hong Kong at 43% and Taiwan coming in third at 42%. 


It stated: “The gender gap in good jobs largely reflects women’s lower rate of participation in the workforce worldwide — particularly in the Middle East and North Africa. But these gaps remain even among women who are participating in the workforce and those with higher levels of education — further exposing the need to focus on human capital development in these regions.”
