Based on an international survey, the balance between work and private life is more important to workers in the long term than the possibility of career building, according to profession.hu.

The Boston Consulting Group (BCE) study was based on a survey of 90,000 people in 160 countries, including Hungarians.

Among the non-material preferences for long-term employment, every seventh respondent indicated work-life balance was the most dominant aspect, regardless of region and age group.

For 41% of the respondents, getting ahead in their careers is important.

The third most important aspect is that employees can deal with exciting products, services, topics, and technologies at their workplace.
