39% of Malaysians Might Quit - If They Have to Spend More Time in the Office

Join us as Sruthi Nambiar from Randstad Malaysia shares insights from their recent 2024 Workmonitor survey, revealing that 39% of Malaysians would consider leaving their jobs if required to spend more time in the office. The survey, which involved 517 working adults, highlights a significant mismatch between employer expectations and employee desires for flexible work arrangements.

In this episode, we discuss the implications of these findings, including the growing importance of workplace equity and inclusion. The data also shows that two in five Malaysians have adjusted their lifestyles in anticipation of continued flexible work post-pandemic, indicating a shift towards more personalised work environments.

Learn how these trends are shaping the future of work in Malaysia, influencing everything from daily commutes to overall job satisfaction and workplace culture.
