Singapore Career Progression Survey 2014

Andrew Evans - 11/02/2014

In January 2014, we conducted a survey of our professional job seekers in a range of sectors and disciplines to investigate their current outlook, job satisfaction and expectations with regard to career progression in Singapore. Below are the highlights from the survey report: 

  • Professional job seekers are motivated more by opportunities for career progression than by money – nearly two thirds cited lack of career progression as their main reason for leaving a job
  • Only 12% surveyed were motivated to leave solely based on dissatisfaction with their basic salary
  • Where salary was a motivating factor, the majority of respondents expected a 15-20% pay increase, indicating that a major salary hike may not be needed to tempt an employee to jump ship
  • More than two thirds (68%) of our candidate pool would consider an opportunity overseas with career progression being the main factor in making a decision to migrate overseas

We hope you'll find our survey report useful and insightful. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any queries or comment below or if you wish to provide feedback.
