A recent poll released by Statistics New Zealand showed that over 80% of New Zealand workers are either satisfied or are very satisfied in their jobs and that 40% even love their jobs!
This is great news for young New Zealanders, because it proves that we not only have a great place to live, but most of us also enjoy our work. The results suggested that getting the work/ life balance right is the critical factor, and that even those workers who do long hours or shift work manage to balance work and life enjoyment really well.
Kiwis have the ability and willingness to adopt new technology and work practices, including living and working remotely to enhance their lifestyles. We adapt quickly to change and new ideas, and certainly punch above our weight globally in the ‘tech’ fields, while our entrepreneurial nature, spirit and culture enable us to do well in small businesses.
