In Tech, Work-Life Balance Satisfaction Dependent on Job Role [Infographic]

Cameron Glover

For many employees, no matter what industry you find yourself in, the work-life balance is an elusive thing to capture.

After all, the shifting economy often means that employees are depended on to work longer hours, with little increase in pay or decrease in workplace stress. Workers are finding themselves running low on options when it comes to developing healthier habits and finding support in promoting a better work-life balance.

Comparably, a platform dedicated to “provide anonymous and comprehensive data on compensation, and insights into work culture”, has researched the impact of the workplace and the search for a better work-life balance for those working in tech. More than 6,000 Ttech employees across various major U.S cities were surveyed, and the information gathered was broken down by gender, ethnicity, age, job title, location, and department.

The most significant finding? That, while on average a little more than 60 percent of all employees feel satisfied with their work-life balance, the numbers vary depending on the roles that people play (senior designers overwhelmingly are satisfied at 81 percent, while sales managers pale at 46 percent).
