Based on feedback from employees, a recent ranking has disclosed the city that provides the best work-life balance, with London being recognized as the foremost option.

It involves finding the right balance between the time and energy spent on professional responsibilities and personal activities, such as spending time with family, pursuing hobbies, and engaging in social activities.
