    [h=2]Study reveals Singapore office staff to be the least productive[/h]
    According to the recent Global Productivity Study by Unit4, provider of enterprise systems for service organisations, Singapore office workers spend only 60% of their time on primary duties. This is lower than the global average of 72%, possibly hinting Singaporean staff as the least productive group.
    Singaporean office employees spend 380 hours a year (equivalent to 47.5 work days or two months of the working year) completing administrative or repetitive tasks rather than their primary job function. This loss of productivity is costing Singapore’s service industry more than S$36.5bn annually.
    On average, respondents aged 41 and above estimate they spend significantly more time on their primary duties compared to those aged 26-30.
    In the study, Singapore office workers identified the amount of time they spend on specific daily administrative tasks that prevent them from focusing on their primary duties. This included manually collating and entering data (30%), tracking their project status (26%), with 20% citing handling invoices, and 11% citing submitting expenses and planning travels.


    Stephan Sieber, CEO of Unit4 said: “Left unchanged, this productivity issue could be crippling for business, particularly services organisations who rely on the strengths and output of their people.”
    When asked if they would trust technology – such as a digital / virtual assistant or software application – to manage repetitive tasks, 83% of Singaporean office workers said they would.
    72% felt they would see improved productivity, and 69% felt it would improve their happiness. They are also confident that this technology will be available soon, particularly younger workers (even within a year).
    Additionally, 78% of workers in Singapore agree that technology that aids administration is important for their company to remain competitive.
    “The shifting of roles and responsibilities that come from technological advancements will see more people spending their time on value-added services to help a business grow. We believe that the future of work will be supported by the best technology, enabling the best people to deliver more value to their customers than their competitors,” said Sieber.
    The Global Productivity Study was an online survey commissioned by Unit4 and conducted by DJS Research in April / May 2017 with 1,505 office-based employees working in the service industry in 11 countries, including Singapore.

    Yes, this article should not be a surprise to many singaporeans. After all, if how productive is the CEO of Temasek if she can take time to rummage thru the basement of her FIL's house after he died, accompany her husband when he jalans all over the world, waste time on twitter, co-ordinating the PMO and NHB, etc. She must spend less then 50% actually on the job.

    Most of these unproductive sinkies came from the silver serpants. In fact, of the 84 PAP MPs in parliament, how many of them actually worked for the people?

    Based on one MNC that I know of, around 99% are foreigners.
