THAT’S WHEN WORKERS START SWITCHING OFF
You may be waiting for the clock to tick round to 5 p.m. today so you can leave the office. But in your head, the working week is already over by then. Workers switch off for the weekend at 2:39 p.m. on Friday. A study of 2,000 office staff found the majority mentally wind things down well before the official end of the day. Almost half admit they take Fridays easier than any other day. Six in ten feel entitled to ease up earlier on a Friday because they work more than their contracted hours throughout the week. The average worker puts at least three important things on hold until Monday, it was found. Yet more than 80 percent said their boss still gets value for money by employing them. Many relaxed workers admitted to deliberately scaling down workloads to wind things up early on a Friday, pinpointing 1:32 p.m. as the time they really start shifting into lower gear. By 2:39 p.m., workers have mentally started their weekends in earnest. The survey also confirmed that the “Friday feeling” exists - a third said their workplace has a noticeably better atmosphere on a Friday and 47 percent said their boss is a lot more lenient on this day.
