New Poll Finds Canadian Workers Value Work-Life Balance Over Salary

(MENAFN- New Poll Finds Canadian Workers Value Work-Life Balance Over Salary


Work-life balance has replaced salary as the most desired benefit of Canadian workers.
A survey conducted by ADP Canada and Maru Public Opinion has found that nearly one-third (31%) of respondents said their work-life balance is more important to them compared to pre-pandemic times, with that number rising to 39% of people surveyed who currently work remotely.
Workers' salary was the second-most sought-after benefit with 25% of respondents ranking it as their top priority when looking for a job.
The survey also found that 15% of workers voluntarily changed jobs or left the workforce altogether during the pandemic – a number that rises to 22% among remote workers.
Respondents said some of their reasons for leaving their job were personal life changes, wanting a reduced workload, and more flexible hours.
The online survey was conducted from September 1 to 3 and polled 3,032 Canadian adults with a 2.2% margin of error.
