Jobs with the Best Work / Life Balance ...

We have more flexibility in the workplace than ever before with technology allowing for more teleworkers, shorter hours, variable shift patterns and whatever, yet many working women do not have a healthy work / life balance. Women (and men) work too many hours and don’t have enough leisure time or vacation time. In October 2015, job site Glassdoor released a list of the 25 best jobs for work / life balance. The list was compiled from online reviews and rankings by employees for the year up to 30 September 2015 (there’s more detail at glassdoor.com ) Let’s see if your job is in the list.
