The Philippines has the highest job satisfaction rate in Asia, as the fast-growing economy lifts companies’ productivity and their workers’ happiness, a report showed.
The Happiness Index, compiled by online employment portal JobStreet, showed Filipinos were happiest with their jobs compared to workers from six other Asian countries.
According to the Happiness Index Report, the most important factor for Filipinos to feel satisfied at work is having good relationships with their colleagues.
“It’s the Filipino culture. We’re highly relational and we want to establish personal relationships with the people we spend a third of our day with,” Gioca said.
A convenient work location also boosts job happiness, especially given the traffic jams around Metro Manila, the report read. A strong company reputation is also important to Filipinos since they feel it lends stability to their career.
