 Glasgow is the best city in the UK for work-life balance, according to latest data from CV-Library.


The data explored how 1,200 workers in various cities across the UK felt about their work-life balance and how it was affecting their career decisions.

Glasgow emerged as the best UK city for work-life balance, followed (In order) by Nottingham, Sheffield, Liverpool, Bristol, Southampton, London, Leeds, Cardiff and Manchester.
 
CV-Library noted that 'smaller firms in Glasgow are adopting a progressive approach to work-life balance', with specific reference to the introduction by some employers of a four day week.
 
Overall, the data demonstrated that, despite 97.9% of Brits believing that work-life balance is important, over a third (37.3%) of the nation's professionals admitted to not having a good work-life balance themselves.
 
The results also reveal the dramatic effect work-life balance has on business' ability to retain employees and that a sensible balance can be achieved, without compromising business productivity.
