Even in this economic climate, many employees are investing in their employees’ healthy, balanced lifestyles, and in light of this, Glassdoor, a social jobs and career community, is announcing its Top 25 Companies for Work-life Balance.
Companies named in this list are recognized for providing the optimal balance between work and personal life, and this list is compiled from feedback from employees within the past year. Respondents reported how satisfied they are with their employer overall, how well they feel their CEO is leading the company and their contentment with workplace attributes, such as career opportunities, compensation, benefits, culture, values and work-life balance.
Based on a five-point scale, the top 25 companies include:
North Highland, 4.5
Agilent Technologies, 4.4
SAS Institute, 4.4
National Instruments, 4.3
United Space Alliance, 4.3
Rockspace Hosting, 4.3
Slalom Consulting, 4.2
Hitachi Data Systems, 4.2
Southern California Edison, 4.1
Bain & Company, 4.1
“In today’s highly connected world, striving for work-life balance can feel virtually impossible given greater access to our jobs around the clock,” says Rusty Rueff, Glassdoor career and workplace expert. “Companies that make sincere efforts to recognize employees’ lives outside of the office will often see the pay off when it comes to recruiting and retaining top talent.”
