50 per cent of Kenyan employees would not recommend their workplace - report

The report also revealed that eighty per cent of Kenyans were unhappy with their workplace.

This is according to a study’s report by jobs placement site Brighter Monday ranking the top 100 companies to work for in Kenya, which surveyed 2,067 individuals across entry, mid, and top level positions.

The data indicated that only 23% of Kenyans would recommend their company and a further 27% of those polled were likely to do the same.

The report also revealed that eighty per cent of Kenyans were unhappy with their workplace.

Younger employees were more likely to leave, with 30 per cent of those between the ages of 18 and 24 saying they were willing to quit.

Another 37 per cent of those in the age bracket between 25 and 34 years also expressed their willingness to leave their current jobs.

Job satisfaction

On the other hand, the level of job satisfaction is low in both male and female employees, but lower in the female employees as they posed a greater flight risk (willing to leave their current place of work) when compared to their male counterparts.

Younger employees have a positive perception of their companies but they are still willing to leave when better opportunities come knocking.

Both men and women value the same traits in a company. The top 3 traits being: Good Pay, Job Security, and Proximity to Home.

The report released on Monday ranked telecommunications giant Safaricom asthe best company to work for in Kenya in the list that also included Centum Investments, Kenya Power, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, Unilever and CocaCola.
