Juggling life in the office and life at home is a trying task—and it became even more challenging during the recession when employees were expected to work longer and harder. But even as things improve, balancing your family and career is no easy feat.
If you want a healthy work-life balance then check Glassdoor’s list of top companies for work-life balance which is based on the response of 385,000 employees in an online company review survey.
“In today’s highly connected world, striving for work-life balance can feel virtually impossible given greater access to our jobs around the clock,” said Rusty Rueff, Glassdoor career and workplace expert.
“Companies that make sincere efforts to recognise employees’ lives outside of the office will often see the payoff when it comes to recruiting and retaining top talent.”
MITRE and North Highland received the highest work-life balance rating (4.5 on a 5-point scale) from its employees over the past year. MITRE employees cited the high value the company places on work-life balance as demonstrated through flexible schedules, generous paid time off and other perks, such as an on-site gym and cafeteria.
This is also the second year that MITRE, Agilent Technologies, SAS Institute, National Instruments, FactSet, United Space Alliance, Susquehanna International Group, Slalom Consulting and Morningstar, have made Glassdoor’s Top 25 Companies for Work-Life Balance list.
