Workers in Malaysia are more interested in work-life balance than securing higher pay or career development, said a global survey by specialist recruitment provider Kelly Services.
The Kelly Global Workforce Index (KGWI) survey showed that almost two-thirds (67%) of workers in Malaysia said a work-life balanced career would interest them more than higher pay, compared with 57% in Singapore, China (65%) and Thailand (76%).
“At the same time, 54% of workers in Malaysia would likely give up higher pay for a more flexible work schedule compared with 45% in Singapore and 38% in China,” it said in a statement.
The KGWI titled ‘Worker Preference and Workplace Agility’ surveyed about 230,000 people across 31 countries in the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific.
