Malaysia saw the greatest number of employers participating in the Healthiest Workplace by AIA Vitality Survey 2017 with 5,369 employees from 47 organisations in urban areas taking part.
The survey revealed some real concerns about stress in the workplace and issues surrounding sleep patterns. It is clear that Malaysia suffers from a culture of long working hours, much like its Asian counterparts of Hong Kong and Singapore.
Physical inactivity and poor nutrition are areas of concern for employers and employees alike.
Employers in Malaysia offer a generally good raft of wellbeing interventions with blind spots in mental health and physical activity.
