Work-Life Balance

March 2020

Two German cities – Munich and Hamburg – are among the top five in the world where work-life balance is concerned. That’s according to a study done by the keyless security company Kisi.

Kisi examined 40 major cities based on a series of factors related to the amount of time persons dedicate to their job such as total working hours, commuting and vacation days taken.

The study also looked at whether residents receive equal treatment, evaluating their access to state-funded health and welfare programs as well as institutional support for gender equality and friendliness toward the LGBT+ community.

Finally, researchers examined citizens’ overall happiness, safety and access to wellness and leisure venues, assessing whether residents could enjoy their environment after office hours.

Munich came in second behind only Helsinki, while Hamburg was fourth after Oslo and before Stockholm.
