Growing up, I never heard about work-life balance. The bread earners would go to their office or shops in my case; from morning to night. Sundays were off and would start with watching the television show, special lunch and evening out to an exhibition, a Circus or shopping.
Having work-life balance has become increasingly important; is an understatement in today’s world. Even job descriptions highlight work-life balance as a perquisite offered.
Which country in the world offers the best WL balance? Where daddies officially take a day off per fortnight to spend time with their kids? They can spend time colouring with the kids, reading story books or taking the kid and a bunch of his friends to a movie on a weekday! Where you don’t need to take time out for a dinner date; it is part of work life.
The Dutch know it better; Netherlands scores among the highest in WL Balance in the world!
