The 29 Best Jobs For Work-Life Balance

Attention to work-life balance continues to build in the U.S., so much so that some might consider it a movement. Arianna Huffington’s recent career switch is a clear example. In 2007 the founder and then-CEO of The Huffington Post was so sleep-deprived that, while checking email in her LA office, she collapsed and broke her cheekbone. Several years later she wrote Thrive, a book encouraging people to actively manage their health and well-being. She gave up her CEO role two months ago to start a consultancy that continues her book’s mission. So she’s now devoting her life to work-life balance.

Today careers website Glassdoor released its list of the 29 best jobs for work-life balance. Glassdoor is best known for its crowd-sourced company reviews, and for this list, it grouped those reviews by job title. To be included, a role needed to have at least 75 work-life balance ratings from 75 or more companies. Glassdoor only included ratings submitted over the past nine months.

Work-life balance has different meanings for different people. To some it means a 40-hour work week, while others may prefer longer hours with the flexibility to set their own schedule.

For anyone looking to change jobs and achieve better work-life balance, this list can be a starting point. But don’t forget that in many roles you have more control over your balance than you think. At an event last week about gender diversity in the workplace, J.P. Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon said, “It’s very important that people be deliberate [about work-life balance] . . . because they do a pretty good job sometimes of undermining their own life, their health.”
