Finding a suitable balance between work and daily living is a challenge that we all face. The ability to successfully juggle work, family commitments and a personal life is crucial if all members of the household are to maintain their well-being.
In recognition of National Work Life Week, we are looking at whether people in other countries have achieved a good, healthy balance between their work lives and their home lives. It seems everyone is affected by fatigue and stress but some countries have managed to counter burnout, promote well-being and make it easier for employees to have supportive flexible working practices.
According to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), an intergovernmental economic organisation with 38 member countries, Turkey is by far the country with the highest proportion of people working very long hours, with 33%, followed by Mexico with nearly 29% and Colombia with almost 27% of employees. Other countries with very long working hours include Costa Rica and South Korea.
