Monday, June 17, 2013

KUALA LUMPUR, (Bernama) -- A recent survey by global workplace provider Regus has found that Malaysian workers are happier with their work-life balance than their counterparts in Australia, the United States and the United Kingdom.

Malaysia scored 124 points in the Regus Work:life Balance Index published today, beating the global average of 120 points.

The global study was based on the views of 26,000 professionals in more than 90n countries.

"Positive feelings abound in the workplace, with 76 per cent of respondents enjoying work more than they did a year ago.

"This positivity is even more marked among business owners in Malaysia, 80 per cent of whom enjoy work more than last year, compared with 72 per cent of employees," Regus said in a statement Friday.

Regus Regional Director APAC John Henderson said: "Staff who are happy at work are both more productive and less likely to leave the company.

"As the jobs market improves, businesses are realising that to hire or retain talent, they must focus on extending their flexible working policies, such as offering a choice of work locations."

Previous research from Regus showed that 72 per cent of professionals globally believe that flexible working improves their productivity.
