A recent study published by Bloomberg shows that KL is the third most overworked city behind Dubai and Hong Kong.

That’s no. 3 out of 100 cities! If only it was always so easy to rank third in class just by studying.

List Overworked


The annual study by mobile access technology company Kisi assessed cities around the world for work-life balance based on 3 factors – work intensity, city livability and social services.

The third factor includes quality health care, affordable cost-of-living and ample time off. 

Work-life balance

According to the study, a city that is overworked does not automatically mean that it has no work-life balance.

If there is sufficient accessible services that can care for (health care), entertain and make people happy, the city may have a good work-life balance despite working a lot.

Stock Work Life Balance


Essentially, as the old saying goes, work hard and play hard. 

This is echoed by one netizen who felt that he enjoyed working because he was able to balance this with spending time with his family.



Coming in at first place for the cities with the best work-life balance is Oslo with a score of 100 (which is the highest), followed by Bern and Helsinki, both with scores of 99 and above.



Work from home

If you are someone who appreciates having the luxury of working in your own time, wearing whatever and being wherever you are, you might want to consider making a move to the charming cities of Singapore, Washington and Austin.



These cities are the top 3 best cities to work from home because they offer more jobs that can be performed remotely, boasts a higher feasibility of working remotely for all occupations as well as better infrastructure to support remote work (such as WiFi accessibility)

Overworked Cities

Meanwhile, those from Dubai, Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur who could use a breather may want to consider Amsterdam, Buenos Aires, or Sydney, where less than 10% of the population is overworked.


Do you think you are overworked? What are some things you do to wind down?
