It is September – the month of grey clouds, finished holidays, and email backlogs.
If the thought of working abroad has crossed your mind then you could do worse than look at a comprehensive report by InterNations, an expat networking website.
The group surveyed 14,000 people who had left their country to work somewhere else to find out where people are happiest.
The survey accounted for different factors, such as ease of settling in, quality of life, and cost of living to decide the rankings of countries.
It also surveyed how many hours expats found themselves doing in an average week.
Here are the 9 destinations where you might spend the shortest amount of time in the office.
9. New Zealand: 42.2 hours per week. New Zealand comes out on top in terms of work-life balance alone, beating Denmark and Luxembourg, who are in second and third place, respectively.
8. Luxembourg: 41.8 hours per week. Luxembourg ranks number one for a stable economy, safe jobs, and a healthy work-life balance.
7. Norway: 41.7 hours per week. Along with having short work hours, Norway tops the list for the best work/life balance.
