Be it work from home (WFH), hybrid remote work or a five-day work week, recruiters say job-seekers are increasingly looking for a balanced life, demanding such benefits during hiring.

Hiring experts and job sites alike believe the trend is here to stay as long as the current sellers’ market reigns.
