Work Life balance is often considered to be a luxury when it is actually a necessity for the working class. Many of the ‘developed’ nations have been talking about such responsibilities as an employer but other nations are slowly getting the grove of it with time.

A Mong the first people to talk about its importance were the Europeans who forcefully set boundaries to limit their work and personal life clashes and it slowly went on to be followed by other nations. As for the Asian cultures, people towards the east are believed to be extremely hardworking and are also known to priorities their work over other things.

There is not much difference in work styles, especially in the Asian countries. But as people are getting to know about their rights and responsibilities, they have realized that work life balance is indeed a very essential concept not only for their mental but also physical health.

Malaysia is one such country that is rapidly progressing towards adapting a more friendly and casual work system in their lifestyles. Malaysians are demanding work life balance in their jobs especially after the damage that Covid-19 pandemic has caused.
