59% of Singaporeans would choose travel over a work promotion

The majority of Singaporean professionals want a getaway from the work-from-home life.

As flexible work set-ups turned homes into offices in 2020, a majority of Singaporeans have started to prefer travel over work promotions.

A survey conducted by Booking.com noted that 59% of Singaporeans would prioritise travel over work success, or vacations over promotions.

Despite months of limited interactions with friends and family, 54% of Singaporeans said they would rather have a trip away from home than dinner with extended family.

More than half, at 54%, have banked more vacation days during the pandemic, and are excited for the possibility of taking a long vacation in 2021.

This was all driven by the impact of quarantine on people's well-being, with 52% of Singaporeans reporting lower mental health, and 47% feeling imprisoned in their own homes.

The survey was conducted online in January 2021, and had a sample size of 1000 Singaporean adults who plan to travel in the next 12 months.
