Now that the Christmas holidays are over, we've gotten back into our "normal" work routine. But what is normal? Have you ever wondered how New Yorkers would describe a normal or typical workday?

New York is known for being fast paced and I'm not just talking about the Big Apple. The most common words used to describe our day-to-day routine include "busy," "exhausting," and "challenging."

Stress in the Healthcare Industry:

One industry that has the most stress is healthcare. New Yorkers working in hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare settings are often in high-pressure situations and they have a ton of responsibility.

Finding Enjoyment in Technology

On the other hand, New Yorkers working in the computer and technology industry seem to be having a better time at work. Despite having stress like other jobs, people in the technology field find happiness and satisfaction in their jobs more than people in other industries.

Education: A Busy Bee Hive

Teachers and administrators in schools in New York describe their work as busy and fast-paced.

The Boss Factor

If you've been in the workforce for any period of time, you know that not all New Yorkers are blessed with great bosses. I've had many awesome bosses through the years but according to the study, around 1 in 5 Americans describe their bosses in negative terms.

The use words like "incompetent" and "demanding" but in industries like education and healthcare, employees seem to have more positive perceptions of their superiors.

The Quest for Work-Life Balance

Finding the right balance between work and personal life can be a struggle for many New Yorkers. The demands of their jobs can bring down their personal well-being. As the "Great Resignation" suggests, many American professionals, including New Yorkers, are rethinking about their career and look to have a better work-life balance.
