Thais struggle with work-life balance

Business people in Thailand are spending more time away from their home lives than peers globally, according to Regus, a leading provider of flexible workplaces.

William Willems, regional vice-president of Regus for Southeast Asia and the Pacific, said despite encouraging news that work-life harmony for workers is improving globally, survey findings revealed that difficult economic conditions have had a negative impact on Thai working life.

The Regus Work-Life Balance Index, a survey of over 16,000 professionals in over 80 countries, revealed 49 percent of Thai business people spend more time away from their home life than they did in 2010. The global average is 39 percent.
