Vietnamese workers exhibit the lowest levels of daily anger at work among the nine Southeast Asian countries surveyed in the ‘State of the Global Workplace: 2024 Report’ by American analytics and advisory company Gallup.

When asked 'Do you often experience feelings of anger at work?', only 10 percent of the Vietnamese employees agreed, compared to 31 percent in Myanmar, the highest-ranked country in the region.

Vietnam also boasts the lowest level of sadness at work in Southeast Asia, with only 11 percent of its employees agreeing with the question 'Do you often experience feelings of sadness at work?'

In addition, Vietnam ranks seventh out of nine in terms of the level of stress at work, with 22 percent of the respondents answering ‘Yes’ to the question 'Do you often experience feelings of stress at work?'

Vietnamese employees rank second-lowest in terms of employee engagement, with only 16 percent feeling engaged with their company.

It is noteworthy that Gallup categorizes the rest into two groups -- not-engaged employees who are quietly quitting and actively-disengaged employees who are loudly quitting.

On the contrary, when asked 'Do you think it is now a good time to find a job?', 67 percent of the Vietnamese respondents agreed, ranking Vietnam third in terms of job climate.

Overall, 51 percent of the Vietnamese respondents feel their life will be thriving in five years, leading to Vietnam claiming the top spot in life evaluation.
