Work-life balance for me means that I can stop working earlier once in a while and go to the lake. Or when my employer does something for my health (like an ergonomic working space or sports offerings). It’s the small things that really make me happy: an ice cream in summer or getting chocolate at Easter or Christmas. That makes a good impression – those who come here, stay here. Unless the employee is retiring, of course. If I were applying today, I would again start with WEFA.
