Sorry guys. It's just been a little difficult to blog lately. Stick with me, and this winter blah thing will pass. :)
Today on the show we talked about things that people will give up for a better work life balance. People who were surveyed staffing website www.momcorps.com said that they'd happily work from home to create a work life balance.
Here are some other key results that we will cover in more depth in subsequent posts:
Nearly one in two working adults (45%) are willing to give up some percentage of their salary for more flexibility at work; nearly 10% (8.6%) is the average proportion of their salary working adults are willing to relinquish—almostdouble the amount of last year’s survey (5.8%).
The 18-34 age group, on average, would be willing to give up almost 14 percent of their salary (13.9%), more so than working adults aged 35+.
More than three in five working adults (61%) strongly or somewhat agree that flexibility is one of the most important factors they consider when looking for a new job or deciding what company to work for, and one in five strongly agree (20%).
Sixty-seven percent of working adults agree that it is possible to “have it all” when it comes to work-life balance, and interestingly there is no significant difference here between women (68%) and men (66%).
Fifty-two percent of working adults would be interested in starting their own business in order to achieve a better work-life balance, led by men age 35-44 (75%).
More than half (53%) of working adults think they would get more work done if they had the ability to work from home occasionally. Nearly two in three (62%) 18-34 year olds agree.
We also talked about 15 Offbeat Holidays that happen during November from the uber awesome website mentalfloss.com.
Some of the great celebrations this month include:
Clean out your refrigerator day on November 15th
National Toilet Day on November 19th
King Tut Day on November 4th
finally we just missed National Tongue Twister Day on Nov 7th (it was election day, we have an excuse to miss it). Here are a lot of tongue twisters from all over the world.
