What does it actually mean when a company says it provides a “great work-life balance”? Does it mean unlimited paid time off? Flexible schedules? Generous parental and sabbatical leave policies? Truth be told, every company’s definition of work-life balance varies. What we can say for sure is when companies remember the human side of their business, rather than just the bottom line, good things tend to happen. 

Organizations that give their employees ample time off, in-house amenities, opportunities to bond with coworkers and flexible work schedules often experience tremendous benefits. Not only do overall happiness levels increase for companies offering plentiful perks and benefits, but rates of employee burnout and negative health conditions plummet too.    

There isn’t a magic formula for creating a healthy work-life balance, but the 20 companies below make it a priority.


  • Sprout Social
  • Sage Intacct
  • Asana
