When it comes to work-life balance, it seems that Europe has got it figured out. Norway, the Netherlands and Sweden all offer employees short hours and consistently try to think of ways to make the job better, like improving commutes.

While we work long hours in the United States, we know how to unwind in our off time which makes the US a great country for work-life balance. Our neighbors to the north in Canada have been jumping up the charts when it comes to work-life balance because employers have been noticing that a happy worker is a productive worker.
