After coming out of educational institutions, work consumes most of our lives, and sometimes, it may even encroach into other areas.

In recent years, employees have been fighting for a work-life balance, and a study by Randstad has shown that 50% of their (Malaysian) respondents would consider quitting if it means there will be an improvement in work-life balance.

35% of them said that they are motivated to leave their jobs if it means that somewhere else is offering a higher salary to cope with the rising cost of living.

Their respondents comprise 11% Gen Z, 31% Millennials, 53% Gen X, and 5% Boomers.

Throughout the generations, the number one reason for quitting is for a better work-life balance.
