Japan lags behind in providing better facilities for employees; India's position in survey is surprising

TOKYO: A recent global survey conducted by the McKinsey Health Institute has found that Japan came last in a global ranking of employee well-being. The survey was conducted based on the mental, physical and social health of the employees. The final result of the survey was released the other day.

More than 30,000 workers in 30 countries participated in the survey. Japan scored only 25 percent in the survey. Turkey scored the highest at 78 percent, while India came second by scoring 76 percent. China came out third at 75 percent.

"Japanese companies are known for providing lifetime employment and job security, but this also means that it can be difficult for employees to switch jobs if they are unhappy. Japan consistently has had low ratings in international surveys and the results reflect it," said Rochelle Kopp, a board member of MS&AD Insurance Group Holdings Inc.

Lack of satisfaction of employees at work, massive work pressure etc. are the problems faced by people in Japan. Meanwhile, an increasing number of people in Japan are working on short-term contracts. This is another problem. The survey pointed out that experienced employees in Japan have better health and working conditions. They also bring innovative ideas to work.

The majority of the country's adults spend most of their day at work. This has a severe effect on their physical, mental, social and spiritual health.
