Is your work-life balance in poor, good or excellent condition? New research by Robert Half Account Temps shows that a majority of workers rate it good or excellent. Omaha Branch Manager Nuria Archer says the trend is changing.
Archer says, “Seventy-four percent of employees that were polled said they actually achieved a good or excellent work-life balance. It is pretty interesting because a few years ago that wasn’t going on. That is good but I still think we are a little bit behind of the European countries.”
The age group that is best managing home-work life is 18 to 34. Archer says there is a very tight candidate market right now and companies have to think about what they can do to draw good employees and what it will take to keep them there.
Archer says, “I think it is important for companies to define what work-life balance is and what it means to you as to what it means to me. How can they keep those employees engaged and staying there because if they lose them it is going to take them a long time. Every time you lose an employee it is going to take a lot of money.
The report shows the worst cities with the worst balance are San Diego, Denver, Nashville, Cincinnati, Raleigh and Atlanta. The best are San Francisco, Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago and Miami.
