However, 33% of the employees surveyed are expecting a yearly  bonus averaging three to five months.

Ryan Carroll, Country Manager of Randstad Malaysia hints, “Companies in some sectors will likely not budget for large bonuses this year due to the economic slowdown in Malaysia, which will have a direct impact on the business’s ability to earn a healthy profit.”
