Almost half of Canadian women respondents in a recent survey said they’ve considered leaving their current employer in search of a better work-life balance.

They’re looking for a shorter work week and the option to work from home, according to the study conducted by Pollara Inc., for the Women’s Executive Network.

The survey of 350 female executives from across the country found that most women — those with and those without children, empty-nesters and young mothers — want a four-day work week and more opportunity to work from home.
