Overtime. Hustle culture. Burnout. If you live in a country that glorifies overworking like Singapore, those words are probably incredibly familiar with you by now.
For two consecutive years, Singapore has been ranked the second most overworked city in the world, based on an international study by Kisi. What’s more is that we also ranked 9th place from the bottom in 2020 for work-life balance among 50 other cities. Multiple factors such as the rising cost of living, increased competition in the workforce, and the fear of losing our jobs puts pressure on us to constantly perform well at work.
