Filipinos Working in E-Commerce Are Among the Most Satisfied in Southeast Asia, According to Study

'It's quite interesting since the Philippines has one of the lowest recorded salaries.'

E-commerce is one of the world's largest industries these days. But, locally, the industry also happens to have the most satisfied employees in Southeast Asia. A study by iPrice Group says that despite having one of the lowest salaries, Filipinos are the second-most satisfied in the region.

iPrice gathered data to study the fairly new industry to see the gender diversity and job satisfaction rates among the top three e-commerce companies in seven countries in Asia. In terms of gender diversity, Hong Kong has the highest percentage of women in top level roles, while the Philippines ranked among the lowest at 39 percent. iPrice highlighted that—in a previous study—the Philippines had the most women in high positions in various industries.

For job satisfaction, Asians rated the companies fairly high with average to above-average scores. 50 percent said that they would recommend e-commerce companies to their friends, while CEOs had really high approval ratings ranging from 66 to 97 percent.

"[Filipinos] give their top 3 e-commerce companies a 3.8-star rating, while 76 percent of them would recommend the companies to friends, and 87 percent of them approve of their CEOs. It’s quite interesting since the Philippines has one of the lowest recorded salaries (US$588/mo) among the seven countries, right after Vietnam (US$394/mo)," iPrice said.

Indonesia topped the job satisfaction rate study. According to data from Glassdoor, Indonesians gave the companies a 4.3 rating with high percentage scores for the workplace and CEOs.
