Time Off?

09 - 08 - 2010

UK workers are finding it tough to take time off, according to a new survey from international recruiter Randstad.

The Randstad quarterly Workmonitor survey shows that around two-thirds (67%) of UK workers believe that their workload increased in the second quarter of 2010, while 40% say that their workload does not allow them to take the amount of time off they would like and that fitting in holidays with colleagues is getting harder.

A quarter of UK workers are at their desk by 7.30am and don’t leave work until at least 6pm, according to new research from Reed Specialist Recruitment. The research also shows 40% do take a lunch break, while most respondents take work home, completing 42 minutes ‘homework’ every night

The research also found that 48% of those surveyed want to spend more time working from home and 43% are keen to give up the traditional ‘nine to five’ in favour of less rigid working patterns.
