Finland is among the top countries for work-life balance. How does Finnish society support finding a healthy balance between your career and your personal life?
Flexible working hours, substantial parental leave, ample annual vacation time, and the possibility to work remotely are some of the factors that contribute to good work-life balance in Finland. A workday of 8 hours or less leaves time for family, friends and hobbies.
Gender equality is also central to Finnish work-life balance – everyone is equal, both at home and at work. The building blocks of work-life balance contribute to the infrastructure of happiness in Finland.
