Work-life balance and the hours people work are very much in the news just now.
According to a recent survey by YouGov, only six per cent of the UK’s working population works the “traditional” Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, working week. However, before you rejoice and big-up your own flexible working arrangements, it’s worth pointing out that less than 50% enjoy job-sharing or other forms of flexi-working. In other words (do the maths) an awful lot of people are probably working many more hours than the rest.
In New Zealand, a six-month trial of a four-day working week has proved a real success, with staff at Perpetual Guardian reporting hugely enhanced sense of an improved work-life balance, reduced stress and increased job satisfaction.
All of which got us wondering. What do IT workers in the UK think of their current working conditions, work-life balance and job satisfaction? To help provide (some) answers, we’ve constructed this little quiz. It only has ten questions and will give you an indication (but no more) of whether it’s time to seek pastures new or whether you are perfectly content with your current employment (or somewhere inbetween!).
