How to improve your work-life balance score

The  work-life balance score  is calculated using the information that is provided to us when a job is posted.

Work-life balance is mostly subjective and hard to measure, so we do what we can with the data we have to provide a good indicator. We're always looking at new ways to improve the accuracy of the score, so if you have any suggestions please let us know!

The main factors we consider at the moment are:

  • Amount of hours worked per week and the flexibility of working hours
  • Possibility to work remotely
  • Benefits, a few of which include:

    • health insurance
    • unlimited paid vacation
    • fitness, food or transport allowances
    • employee training programmes

How to improve your work-life balance score

Since the score is based on the information provided, you need to include as much relevant information as possible about your benefits and even salary range. If you're not able to offer more 'expensive' benefits like insurance or fitness, food or transport allowances, you can always offer flexible work hours, reduced working hours and remote working as the three key employee benefits. These have the highest impact towards your work-life balance score.

We want companies to put a bigger focus on the well-being of employees and showcase this effort to attract the best talent they can. Coffee and fresh fruit is a standard offering, ping pong and consoles don't add value to a healthy mind but benefits that aid a good work-life balance to entice the best talent to join you.
