Singapore ranked nearly last when compared to other countries in Asia Pacific, with more than 70% of employees indicating that they are somewhat engaged at work1. Moreover, Singapore has struggled with declining engagement levels over the last three years as employees are becoming more critical about questions related to their motivation, pride, and satisfaction. These numbers demonstrate the shift in the expectations employees have with their employers. It has become apparent that more importance is now placed on organizations supporting employees beyond just personal development, but also in areas of total wellbeing e.g. financial, mental, physical and psychological.
Given these challenges as well as budget constraints, limited resources and increasingly competitive marketplace for talent, how can employers ensure they are meeting employees’ wellbeing needs?
Join us in our upcoming four-part series, Wellbeing Journey with Mercer as we showcase how to design a holistic and data driven strategy. In these sessions we will share:
- The latest wellbeing trends
