Addressing Unique Needs of Today’s Workforce through Work-Life Practices

WLPs are shaping the future of work and aligning with the evolving needs of the workforce. As work-life balance becomes increasingly crucial for employees, companies can use WLPs as a valuable tool for attracting and retaining top talent in a competitive market.

A survey by TalentCorp Malaysia Berhad found that the majority of employers in Malaysia recognize the importance of WLPs for meeting future workforce demands.

This bodes well for the future of work, as the global workforce is expected to consist of diverse generations with varying values, habits and perspectives in 2020.
