Ceridian Pulse of Talent Report: Burnout Impacting Majority of Singapore’s Workforce

Singapore, December 1, 2021

Ceridian (NYSE: CDAY; TSX: CDAY), a global leader in human capital management (HCM) technology, today released results from its annual Pulse of Talent report, which found the vast majority of surveyed workers in Singapore have struggled with burnout.

Ceridian’s 2022 Pulse of Talent Report was conducted by Hanover Research and surveyed 469 Singapore workers in companies with at least 100 employees.   

The report revealed:

  • 92% of surveyed workers have experienced burnout, with 36% reporting high or extreme levels
  • The top three catalysts for burnout among respondents are increased workloads (49%), pressure to meet deadlines (37%), and too many hours (33%)
  • Meanwhile, one-third of surveyed workers say they are less focused (37%), and losing interest in their work (33%) as a result of burnout
  • Actions surveyed employees are taking, or planning to take, to address burnout include changing jobs (30%) and taking sick leave or leave of absence (29%)

“The world of work has changed, and now is the time for employers to rethink how they approach employee mental health and wellbeing,” said Rob Squires, Vice President & Head of Sales, Asia & Japan, Ceridian. “In addition to being the right thing to do, a healthy and engaged workforce is essential to the growth of any organisation in today’s increasingly borderless, fluid and always-on world of work.”

While the report showed surveyed workers feel their employers are currently supporting mental health and wellness through flexible schedules (33%) and Employee Assistance programs (30%), nearly one-quarter of respondents (23%) didn’t feel their employers were offering any support for their mental health and wellness.

“It’s never been more important for employers to deliver programs that support wellness, and the benefits workers want and need most,” concluded Squires.
