Captivate Office Pulse Survey Reveals Men are Happier than Women with their Work-Life Balance

Captivate Network, the leading digital media company providing customized, actionable information to millions of on-the-go business professionals throughout North America, has released its latest Captivate Office Pulse survey of more than 670 North American white-collar workers about their attempts to balance their personal and work lives. The research uncovers the profiles of the happiest and unhappiest workers. In addition, the Captivate Office Pulse has identified some of the ways the lack of a work-life balance impacts people and how a healthy work-life balance can be maintained.

Snapshots: Happy and Unhappy People Profiles

When it comes to extreme happiness (in the office and at home), men are consistently happier than women. Men are 25 percent happier at work than women, eight percent happier at home and 75 percent of them report being able to balance their work and personal lives.

So who is the extremely happy person, both at home and at work? He’s 39 years old, married, with a household income between $150-$200 thousand, in a senior management position, with one young child at home and a wife who works part-time.

What’s the profile of an unhappy person in the office and at home? She’s a 42 year old, unmarried woman with a household income under $100 thousand, working in a professional position (i.e. as a doctor or a lawyer).
