Slack is the fastest software company in history to receive a billion dollar valuation.
It recently conducted what it calls a “Slack Survey” in Salt Lake City to determine how important a work-life balance is to residents there. It revealed 90 percent of Salt Lakers believe they have a “well-balanced” or “somewhat well-balanced” work-life balance and that is a very high score relative to other parts of the country.
Christina Meng is a customer trends expert at Slack. She said the reason for such positive results is one that most residents of the state might echo: the abundance of outdoor activities that are readily available.
Meng said Salt Lakers identified three companies that are the best for work-life balance. They are, first, Costco, with the world’s largest Costco warehouse in Salt Lake City, then Intermountain Healthcare and Jet Blue second and third.
