MALAYSIA:::Long weekends vs productivity

Malaysians will have at least nine long weekends this year. While workers rejoice, employers worry if this will affect productivity, considering the bleak economic forecast for 2016.
THE year-end holiday season has ended worldwide. But in Malaysia, workers have something else to look forward to – there will be at least nine long weekend breaks this year.
Thanks to a number of national holidays falling on Fridays, Mondays and Sundays, those in Malaysia can take more than a few days’ break, with the closest reprieve being the coming Chinese New Year.
