45% of Kuwait re­spon­dents ex­pect busi­ness con­di­tions to im­prove

Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS -

With re­gards to sat­is­fac­tion lev­els, 41% of em­ployed Kuwait re­spon­dents are sat­is­fied with their ca­reer growth op­por­tu­ni­ties, while 34% are dis­sat­is­fied. When it comes to com­pen­sa­tion, al­most a third of Kuwait re­spon­dents (33%) are sat­is­fied, while al­most half of them (41%) are dis­sat­is­fied with their cur­rent com­pen­sa­tion lev­els. The ma­jor­ity of re­spon­dents (39%) are sat­is­fied with the non-mon­e­tary ben­e­fits they re­ceive, and 46% are sat­is­fied with the level of job se­cu­rity in their cur­rent or­ga­ni­za­tion.

“De­spite the neg­a­tive feel­ings that have char­ac­ter­ized the past few months, there are sparks of op­ti­mism among re­spon­dents that eco­nomic con­di­tions in their coun­tries will im­prove in the fu­ture,” said Suhail Al-Masri, VP of Em­ployer So­lu­tions, Bayt.com. “In real­ity, re­spon­dents believe that there aren’t suf­fi­cient jobs, and this real­ity proves that com­pe­ti­tion among job­seek­ers is fierce across the re­gion. This is where Bayt.com comes in the pic­ture. By of­fer­ing job seek­ers the most ef­fec­tive tools that can en­hance their CV ex­po­sure to lo­cal and re­gional em­ploy­ers, we give job seek­ers the op­tion of re­ceiv­ing cus­tom­ized and oneon-one as­sis­tance through­out their job search. Our aim at Bayt.com is to en­sure that we are em­pow­er­ing all of the re­gion’s job seek­ers and em­ploy­ers, which is why our role does not stop at the re­cruit­ment so­lu­tions. In fact, we reg­u­larly pro­vide the re­gion with the lat­est re­search and ex­pert advice that are vi­tal for ca­reer growth and suc­cess.”

Elis­savet Vraka, Re­search Man­ager, YouGov, said: “It is im­por­tant for us to con­duct thor­ough re­search into the re­gional con­sumer sen­ti­ments. Con­ducted twice a year with Bayt.com, the Mid­dle East Con­sumer Con­fi­dence Index sur­vey is a pow­er­ful tool that gives in­sight into the thoughts and opin­ions about per­sonal, busi­ness, and eco­nomic con­di­tions of those liv­ing in the MENA re­gion.”

Data for the “Mid­dle East Con­sumer Con­fi­dence Index sur­vey” was col­lected on­line from Au­gust3 to 31 2016, with 2,893 re­spon­dents liv­ing in the UAE, Saudi Ara­bia, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, Bahrain, Syria, Jor­dan, Le­banon, Egypt, Morocco, Tu­nisia, and Al­ge­ria. Males and fe­males aged 18 years old and above, of all na­tion­al­i­ties, were in­cluded in the sur­vey.
