Revealed: Best cities for work-life balance

by |
A recent industry report has revealed the best cities for work-life balance after comparing more than 70 leading business cities from around the world – but it seems one area in particular has a more relaxed culture.

Despite analysing commerce hubs from multiple continents, each of the top 10 cities for an enviable work life balance can be found in Europe.
  1. Paris, France — 30.84 hours
  2. Lyon, France — 31.36 hours
  3. Moscow, Russia — 31.66 hours
  4. Helsinki, Finland — 31.91 hours
  5. Vienna, Austria — 32.27 hours
  6. Milan, Italy — 32.52 hours
  7. Copenhagen, Denmark — 32.64 hours
  8. Luxembourg, Luxembourg — 32.75 hours
  9. Vilnius, Lithuania — 33 hours
  10. Brussels, Belgium — 33.02 hours
European cities also take out the next three places, with Munich at 33.1 hours, Amsterdam at 33.2 hours and Madrid and 33.28 hours.

“Business hubs in Far East Asia work considerably harder than Europe with Mumbai, Mexico City and Bangkok having some of the longest working hours and taking the least holiday in comparison to the rest of the world,” said a spokesperson for Expert Market, the business provider that conducted the survey.
