Work-life balance: A pipe dream for Millennials?

While finding a healthy work-life balance often looks like an impossible feat, it seems to be even harder for Millennials. This is the ‘work hard, play hard’ generation that can do it all: get promoted, party, travel, meditate, socialise, work out, raise children – all while working afterhours and checking their email on evenings, weekends and holidays! And with social media adding an extra layer of pressure to look like they are ‘living their best life’, the question arises: at what cost?

Whether commuting on the train, running in the park or sitting at your desk, Mintel’s podcast series ‘Little Conversation’ brings you fresh ideas, bold innovation and data-driven intelligence.
