Almost half (49%) of business owners and senior managers in Singapore, who responded to a Regus survey, say flexible work conditions are a key to fostering 'intrepreneurship', the work trait of behaving like an entrepreneur even if working for a large company.
This was according to the Luxembourg-based serviced offices provider whose press statement said the results formed part of a global survey in 98 countries involving a sample size of over 19,000 business owners and senior managers.
Views on 'Intrapreneurship'
The global survey sought the views of respondents with regard to fostering the trait of intrapreneurship among employees and workers.
Aside from flexible work, other top enablers cited by Singapore respondents were the following:
- Mixing selected staff from different functions, 40%
- Skills updating programmes, 40%
- Access to senior management, 39%
According to Regus Singapore country manager Paul MacAndrew, flexible work helps employees to think outside the box and seek out innovation.
