Why Malaysian Employees Are Unhealthy
What is the Problem with Malaysian Employees?
According to the findings from the Healthiest Workplace by AIA Vitality Survey 2017, 12.5% of Malaysian employees are obese and this is becoming an increasing problem. Furthermore, they work the longest hours at about 15 hours more than their stipulated hours each week.
The survey also highlighted that a sedentary lifestyle is prevalent among workers. Nearly 64% of employees do less than 150 minutes of physical activity a week – the highest percentage compared to Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia.
