Data from software company Kisi compared 50 cities worldwide, recognising which of them encourage a healthy balance both directly and indirectly through policies and urban infrastructure, while also considering the impact of the pandemic. Hong Kong, Singapore and Bangkok have emerged as the top three cities with the most overworked populations in the world.
 

They studied three elements: work intensity, society and institutions and city livability – all of which they say contribute to work-life balance, during and beyond the pandemic.

“全球最累城市”前十名,香港第一

一项名为“2021最佳工作生活平衡城市”的研究结果显示,在“全球最累城市”排行榜上,前十名中有六座城市位于亚洲。该报告由美国科技公司Kisi完成,其统计并分析了全球50座城市的“劳累指数”(该城市全职职工每周的工作时间),在排名靠前的城市中,全职职工每周工作时间远超国际劳工组织建议的每周工作40小时。
 

全球劳累指数排名前十的城市分别为:香港、新加坡、曼谷、布宜诺斯艾利斯、首尔、东京、休斯敦、吉隆坡、卡尔加里和伦敦,其中排名榜首的香港每周工作时长超过了标准周工作时间29%,已连续两年位于榜首。新加坡的平均工作时也超过了25.1%,同样是第二年获得“榜眼”。此外,2019年的第三名首尔如今成为第五名,昔日“冠军”东京也退居第五。三年来,榜单前五名虽略有变化,但基本还是这几个固定的城市在做“换位游戏”。工作生活平衡指数”排名前十的是:赫尔辛基、奥斯陆、苏黎世、斯德哥尔摩、哥本哈根、渥太华、慕尼黑、温哥华、阿姆斯特丹和悉尼,其中欧洲城市占到七成。

据Kisi介绍,他们根据“工作强度”“机构支持”“法律保护”和“宜居性”4个维度,进行了“疫情前”“疫情期间”和“疫情后”3个时间段的划分,来给各个城市打分。该调查从2019年开始,今年为第3个年头。与往年不同的是,研究人员在几个与疫情相关的关键领域(病例数、封锁措施的严重程度和经济损失)进行了更深入的考察,以探究大流行对民众工作与生活平衡的影响。
