Survey: Most HK employees have no sense of belonging

Six in 10 Hong Kong employees have no sense of belonging to their companies, Ming Pao Daily reported Friday, citing a survey.

The figure dwarfs the global average of 41 percent.

The survey by human resources consultant Towers Watson interviewed 32,000 employees of global companies, including 1,000 from medium to large Hong Kong enterprises.

It found that three in 10 Hong Kong employees expect to quit their jobs within two years, higher than the global rate of 26 percent.

In addition, only 43 percent said their salaries are consistent with market levels, against the global average of 49 percent.

Towers Watson spokesman Marieke Van Raaij said the results show Hong Kong employers have not gained the trust of their employees.

Employers should improve communications with workers on key issues such as compensation and workload, he said.
