Almost half of workers would relocate for better work-life balance, poll shows

Written by Alan Jones

Almost half of workers would relocate if their employer could offer a better work-life balance, a study shows.

A survey of 2,000 employees by finance giant Nationwide found that people in London were most likely to escape city life.

The prime age for considering moving to another area for work was between 36 and 44, the poll revealed.

Money was the biggest driver for relocating, but 45% said they would move for a better work-life balance.

Katrina Hutchinson-O'Neill of Nationwide said: "It was always assumed that to work for an innovative, leading organisation meant living in a metropolis.

"But our latest research puts pay to that view with more and more London workers moving beyond the M25 to locate that perfect job as an increasing number of companies base themselves in other parts of the UK."
