Singapore employees respond better to training in the workplace than their counterparts in any other country, according to a survey.
In Singapore, a high 95 per cent of respondents said career coaching improves their performance, compared to the global average of 78 per cent, the survey by recruitment firm Robert Half revealed.
Singapore topped the list ahead of Brazil (94 per cent), Hong Kong (88 per cent) and Australia (85 per cent).
The survey of 6,000 employees in 12 countries and territories included more than 500 from Singapore.
Singapore employees also feel career coaching boosts their job satisfaction, with 97 per cent saying having a good coach is important to being a happy employee.
While Brazilian employees are the most motivated by workplace coaching (88 per cent), Singapore came a close second, with 84 per cent of employees feeling more motivated after receiving appropriate career guidance.
Ms Stella Tang, director of Robert Half Singapore, said: "More than (citizens of) any other country, Singaporeans respond favourably to workplace coaching. It can make employees more motivated to contribute to the organisation."
