Mobile access technology company Kisi has published results of its research on cities around the world promoting the most holistic work-life balance.
Cities were selected based on the availability of reliable data and their desirability for professionals and their families to relocate for work and lifestyle opportunities. A total of 40 cities were selected, and ranked based on a series of factors related to the amount of time a person dedicates to their job: total working hours, commuting time, holiday leave taken, access to paid parental leave, access to state-funded health and welfare programs, as well as institutional support for gender and LGBT equality, and overall happiness, safety and access to wellness and leisure venues outside of working hours.
The top 15 cities listed were Helsinki, Munich, Oslo, Hamburg, Stockholm, Berlin, Zurich, Barcelona, Paris, Vancouver, Ottawa, London, Toronto, Budapest and Sydney.
Further details of the 2019 research, which is likely to be continued and expanded in the future, may be found here.
