Singaporean talent unhappy with staffing practices in the nation

While 65% of employees are engaged on average around the world, engagement is Singapore is slightly behind at 63%, according to the 2016 Trends in Global Employee Engagement study by Aon Hewitt.

The survey attributed this lag in the island nation's engagement scores to the dip in perception scores among Millennials who are the largest generation in the country's workforce today (22% of the resident population).

Perception scores in the area of ‘talent & staffing’—which refers to the talent attraction, promotion, and retention practices of an organisation, as well as its ability to allocate resources to get the job done - were found to have dropped by an alarming five points.

At the same time, the demographic's perception scores in terms of diversity and inclusion fell by five points and perception in autonomy as well as work-life balance declined by 3 points.
