There goes everything you thought you knew about the working culture in Malaysia. You, like many others, probably thought that there is no way that Malaysians work longer hours than our peers in Singapore and Hong Kong. And till this moment so did we.

But the results are in and the numbers don’t lie. In the inaugural Malaysia’s Healthiest Workplace by AIA Vitality survey, it was revealed that Malaysians work on average 15 hours more than their contracted hours each week compared to employees in Singapore, Hong Kong, and Australia.

It gets worse! The same survey also revealed that…

#1 Companies in Malaysia have the second highest number of lost days (67 days) of work time per employee per year due absence and presenteeism, costing companies an estimated RM2.7 million per year!
