In an increasingly connected world where our smartphones keep us in touch with work 24/7, striking the right work-life balance is hard. But some countries are better at it than others.
According to the OECD’s Better Life Index, Denmark has the best work-life balance of the 20 OECD countries studied.
On average, 13% of employees in OECD countries work very long hours totalling more than 50 hours per week, compared to just 2% of workers in Denmark.
Pro-family government policies are another reason why Denmark tops the list. These include providing extensive childcare and financial benefits to families with young children.
