Madison No. 2 best city for work-life balance

CoworkingCafe recently published a study ranking some of the largest U.S. cities by their capacity to foster a healthy work-life balance for their working populations based on economic, cultural, and infrastructural factors as well as their psychological influence. Out of 100 cities with at least 200,000 residents, Madison was ranked the second-best city for work-life balance and mental health, second only to Minneapolis.

Madison was the only one in the ranking to score a perfect 100 for the mental health metric, mostly thanks to the shortest average work week at 36.6 hours and the 96% coverage for health insurance. Madison was also in the top third when ranked by affordability and remote work.
