Half workforce wants part-time job

More than half the Dutch workforce (57%) would like to work part-time and some 25% actually do so, according to new research from temp agency Randstad.

Some 42% of men would like to work less, but only 13% officially have part-time jobs. Four out of 10 people in managerial positions would also like to cut their hours.
Randstad defines part-time jobs as those which consist of between 24 and 34 working hours a week.
