Do you work hard or do you work smart? Or do your circumstances allow you to do both?
Kisi, a keyless security company that surveys global lifestyle, studied 40 cities and ranked them according to how well their residents have room for work-life balance. In its 2019 analysis, 20 factors, including job dedication (working hours, commuting), job benefits (institutional support for equality and acceptance, health plans, vacation days), and livability (overall happiness, safety, leisure), were used to figure out a work-life score and assess how well residents can relax after work.
TLDR: According to Kisi, “this index is not designed to be a city livability index, nor is it intended to highlight the best cities to work in; instead, it aims to be a guideline for cities to benchmark their ability to support the fulfillment of residents’ lives by improving the aspects of life that help relieve work-related stress and intensity.”
The conclusion? Work and life seem to find a better balance in Europe. Here are the top 10 cities that find the middle ground.
