Working at a company that values balancing your life is important, especially during the pandemic where the workplace may also be your home.

A working paper from Harvard Business School and NYU Stern School of Business that found employees on lockdown spent more time doing work-related tasks. Additionally, an April article from Bloomberg reported on NordVPN data that shows US employees were working three additional hours a day during the pandemic. 

But some companies offer policies that support work-life balance to prevent employees from feeling overworked. Career website Comparably recently found the companies with the best work-life balance for small and midsize businesses. These companies have less than 500 employees. To do this, Comparably surveyed 60,000 US companies using 10 million anonymous employee ratings on the site between the end of September 2019 to the end of September 2020.

The ranking was based on questions like "Do you feel burnt out at work?" and "Are you satisfied with your work-life balance?" The company then used a numerical score to determine their ranking.

Based on employee quotes provided by Comparably, employees at some of these companies enjoy the generous paid time off and vacation time policies.
