To underline the importance of finding a better job and have a better understanding between the level of happiness and the factors in changing jobs among working groups, jobsDB conducted an online survey named “Happy is a better job” across Hong Kong, Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand from May to June, 2015. The finding was revealed on 31 Aug 2015 in a press reference held at The Excelsior, Hong Kong, attracting over 15 media to cover the story.
The findings indicated that 62% of Hongkongers are unhappy at work. More than 60% of the Hong Kong respondents believe “relationship with colleagues and / or boss” is the primary factor that makes them happy (63%), followed by “salary, benefits and incentives” (54%), and “working environment, culture & reputation” (37%).
In addition, the survey also indicated that 86% of Hongkongers think changing jobs is a wise move, and almost half of them reported that they are happier with their new posts.
