Workaholics Not Happy

A quarter of professionals are dissatisfied with their work-life balance, according to a new survey. Part of the problem may be that work-life balance is only third on people’s list of priorities when choosing a job. Instead work enjoyment is the number one priority, with 41 per cent regarding it as the most important factor in selecting a job. Salary (23 per cent) is second on the list, while only 16 per cent of respondents viewed work-life as the most important consideration when choosing a job. Advancements in technology make it harder than ever to 'switch off' outside the office and achieve an ideal work-life balance.
