Men continue to predominantly hold leadership roles in Singapore's private sector, according to the Randstad Workmonitor Report which tracks gender diversity and job trends.

A recent survey of 405 employees in Singapore found that more than two-thirds - or 69 per cent - of respondents were working for male bosses.

Among the 219 females surveyed, 55 per cent said they preferred working for a male manager.

About three out of five employees also said they felt working part-time was difficult in higher management.

Randstad regional director, Singapore & Malaysia, Ms. Karin Clarke, said providing part-time working options at all levels continues to be an underutilised tool in Singapore.

She added: "Organisations must cast their nets across a wider spectrum of potential future leaders in order to remain competitive and drive the next phase of growth. This includes offering mentoring and career progression opportunities to all workers, not just full-time staff."

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
