66% of employees agree that their employers offer support for mental health and overall well-being

A majority of Singaporeans, comprising 57%, believe that it is crucial to work for an employer who prioritizes diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I), according to research conducted by Randstad Singapore.

This sentiment is particularly strong among the younger generations, as two out of three individuals from Generation Z share the same perspective.

The study also revealed that 18% of Singaporeans feel that their employers do not provide adequate support for the protection and inclusion of LGBTQIA+ employees.

Randstad Singapore emphasised the importance of adopting an equitable approach to hiring in order to cultivate a diverse workforce where every individual has equal opportunities to succeed and contribute effectively. The organisation stated, “When employees feel a sense of purpose and belonging in the workplace, they can freely express their authentic selves, leading to increased job satisfaction and productivity.”

The research further indicated that 66% of employees agree that their employers offer support for mental health and overall well-being. Additionally, 63% acknowledge that their employers have implemented equal pay policies that consider gender and ethnicity, while 62% agree that their employers align with their personal values.

Moreover, 61% of employees agree that their employers take a stand on equity and inclusion, 51% believe their employers take action to mitigate their impact on the environment, and 42% confirm that their employers support the protection and inclusion of LGBTQIA+ employees.

Randstad’s data also unveiled that 79% of respondents consider non-monetary benefits as significant. Among those who deemed non-monetary benefits important, 94% highlighted the importance of having good relationships with their colleagues, while the same percentage emphasized the significance of a positive relationship with their managers. Other factors that ranked high in importance include a convenient location (93%), flexible work arrangements (93%), and increased autonomy in performing their roles (92%).
