New Year New Work-Life Balance Says Hays

New Year New Work-Life Balance Says Hays

Over half (52%) of job hunters regularly take work home, according to a new survey by Hays, the leading recruiting experts. This goes some way to explain why the UK consistently tops the list of the longest working hours in Europe, with an average of 42.7 hours worked each week compared with 41.6 across the EU1.

Mark Sheldon, Regional Managing Director at Hays says: “While a just under a third of people maintain a good level of work life balance and don’t regularly take work home with them, over half of people confessed to taking work home with them more than once a week. In a competitive and challenging jobs market workers may feel they have to work longer hours to show their value and commitment. Hard work should always be applauded but working smart and maintaining your wellbeing should go hand in hand  and should be top of everybody’s New Year’s resolution list.”
