In these days, work life balance might seem to be a seismic shift that happens to occur very few times. As, technology is making the workers accessible around the clock, I am afraid that the very notion of work life balance is in grave danger.
As a matter of fact, around 94% working professionals reported that they have been working more than 50 hours per week, that is truly worrisome. Nearly half of them told that they have been working over 65 hours per week from time to time.
Work life balance might have meant different to every individual, yer here I am, a career expert and coach sharing tips to help you find the perfect balance between work and life.
