According to UK managing director of Robert Half Finance and Accounting Phil Sheridan it is an important focus in the financial world.

"Today's finance professionals are looking for flexible working arrangements and may look for career opportunities elsewhere to achieve greater work/life balance," he said to the news source.

"It is important for employers to offer a good all round package - not just financial, but work/life - to recruit and retain top performing staff," he added.
