It's now widely recognised that working longer hours doesn't necessarily equate to increased productivity.  

In the name of Stress Awareness Week, we've collated 6 companies that are dedicated to helping their employees strike the right balance between their work and social life. 


1. HiTalent - Marketing Manager 

  • Where: London Bridge 
  • Salary: £17,000 - £20,000
  • When to apply: ASAP


At HiTalent you'll enjoy the luxury of unlimited holiday, so if you're feeling run down and need some time out, you have the flexibility to take a day off. When you are working and want to unwind after a productive day, there's plenty to do - whether that's going out in London Bridge with the team, or enjoying a beer over a game of pool in the office. 



Alfa are dedicated to creating a working atmosphere that, well, doesn't feel like you're at work at all. From an in-house coffee bar and social activities like Football and Photography to help you let off some steam, to an annual conference in an exotic destination like Crete, Monte Carlo and Miami, there's always an opportunity to have fun and relax.



Spencer Ogden believe a work-life balance is crucial for your well being: whether that means leaving at 3pm on a Friday, access to discounted gym membership or enjoying your birthday at home with family and friends, they offer a range of benefits to help you enjoy life in and out of work. 



With the option of flexible and remote working, Tempo really encourage their employees to work in a way that suits them best. And if you find yourself feeling burnt out or just want someone to talk to about work, they offer monthly sessions with a mental health coach. This is a company that truly care about the wellbeing of their team and want to see you thrive. 



BDO are a major global player in the professional services industry, but don't let their high status fool you into thinking they don't fully support their employees. You'll be paired with a counselling manager when you join, so there's support available whenever you need it. And when you want to let your hair down, BDO also offer networking groups, socials, sport events and volunteering opportunities.  



We're hiring Developers to join our close-knit team who all enjoy a work-life balance. At GradTouch we understand 9-5 isn't for everyone, that's why our employees have flexible working hours as well as birthday treats, a range of social activities and unlimited holidays, so you can relax and recharge for as long as you need.
