According to a study published by the site on the 2nd July, the city of Lyon is the second favourite city for managers from Paris, ahead of Nantes, Toulouse and Montpellier.

The study, carried out by the number one job search and training site for managers, revealed that 54% of managers questioned voted for Lyon, which has one of the most dynamic health sectors in France. This figure confirms the importance of life sciences in the Lyon ecosystem and shows that this sector is one of the sectors of excellence of the Rhône-Alpes region.

The reasons put forward by managers from Paris for their desire to leave the capital are numerous: the time of the average commute is too long (39 minutes in Paris compared to 19 in Lyon), the high cost of living, and serious housing-related problems.

It would seem, therefore, that Lyon is emerging as a real alternative to Paris by offering a better environment  and therefore a better work-life balance. Today, more than 7 managers out of 10 would like to leave the Paris region to improve their overall quality of life.
