Malaysian professionals lead in valuing friendships in the workplace: LinkedIn Asia

AvantiKumar | July 22, 2014
LinkedIn's 'Relationships@Work' study reveals that more than half (58 per cent) of all Malaysian professionals believe that friendships with colleagues make them happier at work.

- 1 in 7 (15 per cent) of Malaysians have dated someone at work and felt motivated, and the same number have dated someone at work and are still dating them.
- 1 in 10 Malaysians (10 percent) said that they felt distracted at work when they dated a colleague.

The value of relationships at work was clear across ages, cultures and levels in Malaysia, said Commerford, adding that. LinkedIn encouraged all professionals to strengthen their relationships with colleagues by connecting, sharing content, endorsing and joining relevant industry groups on LinkedIn.

In April 2014, CensusWide surveyed more than 11,500 full-time professionals aged between 18-65 in 14 countries including the United States, Sweden, India, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Spain, the Netherlands, Malaysia, Italy, Indonesia, Brazil and the United Kingdom.
