Top 25 Companies for Work-life Balance
See which companies employees rank highest for work-life balance.
Last fall, in a post headlined, "Abandon the Idea of Ever Striking a Work/Life Balance," I wrote about a workplace consultant who argues that a work/life balance is unattainable, so striving for it only leads to frustration and disappointment. But a new online poll appears to suggest that plenty of people are able to strike the balance just fine.
The poll, conducted by polling website SodaHead, is worth a visit. The site does a great job of breaking down the demographics, including by profession, so you can compare your responses to those of the other respondents in IT. Here are the top-line results:
Do you feel you have a proper work/life balance?
What's most important to you in work and life?
What time do you typically leave work each night?
Do you stay at work later than you want because of peer pressure?
Do you think you may be overlooked for a promotion if you leave work early?
Which of these mottos best aligns with your values?
