Women – do you value work-life balance more than salary and position?

March 17, 2013 by Jenny Garrett

This really interesting study via LinkedIn has revealed Global Trends for Women and Work

  • Womens definition of professional success has changed in the last 5-10 years
  • Work-life balance is more highly valued than salary and position
  • Women are concerned about a lack of investment in their ‘professional development’ and ‘lack of a clear career path’

Work-Life balance is key for working women and working families and will be very individual. How do you balance that with wanting to drive your career forward.  Is wanting balance still seen very much as  a lack of commitment to your role and career?  are we really willing to sacrifice income for balance, or is that only when we are already financially secure?

How do you get the right balance for you, join the Rocking Your Role LinkedIn group to discuss this further
