Hybrid-work model a top pick

PETALING JAYA: About 70% of members who responded to the Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF) Quick Poll indicated implementation of a new hybrid-work model – which combines work-from-home and normal (fixed hours) – as among the strategies for future work arrangements in moving forward post the lockdown situation.

The MEF Quick Poll also indicated that only 27.7% picked the normal and fixed-hours model, while flexible working hours received 20%, followed by shift work 19.1%, work-from-home only 15%, and staggered working hours/day 6.8%.

“The MEF Quick Poll reveals interesting information about how employers intend to manage their business as we begin to live with Covid-19.

“MEF is continually engaged with the relevant government agencies, particularly the Ministry of Human Resources, on the need to ensure that our labour laws and regulations address the requirements of employers and employees in the future world of work,” said MEF president Datuk Syed Hussain Syed Husman.
