Global News , Life Abroad Mar 27, 2017 No Comments

Achieving a healthy work-life balance is a top goal for most people. The global average for people satisfied with their work-life balance is only 17%, so it’s safe to say that it’s a goal many struggle to achieve. What is considered a satisfactory work-life balance varies from person to person, and some countries promote a better work-life balance culture than other countries.

A survey by InterNations, the world’s largest global community for people living and working abroad, rated 43 different aspects of life abroad, including work-life balance. Interestingly, the survey found no direct correlation between long working hours and dissatisfaction with work-life balance.

Here’s a look at the top 10 countries:

7. Hungary

6. Sweden

5. Taiwan
