How is your work-life balance? Is it a struggle to make time for yourself and switch off from work?
What determines a good work-life balance? Is it not staying late after work, or sending emails once you have left the office?
In today's markets, is it only the people that sacrifice their personal life for work that are the ones that are high performers and over achievers?
I feel personally that it depends. If you enjoy what you do, you don't feel like you're working hard. I truly enjoy what I do, but at the same time I understand the importance of balance and not burning out.
At Aspire we have flexible working hours, which means we can choose when to come in between 8am and 9.30 am then leave between 5pm and 6.30 pm.
This brings so much more flexibility to your working day and means you're never late for work!
As it is national work-life week, a YouGov report has been released, which states 43% of people regularly send work emails outside of work hours and the reason for this is because they are too busy to get everything done inside a working day. 1 in 7 people are unhappy with their work-life balance. The demographics of employees that are most likely to say they are unhappy with their work-life balance are aged between 25-34, single and earning between £40k-£45k annually. 41% of 25-34 year olds also feel a lot of pressure to work out of working hours so regularly stay behind to impress their boss.
