Staying late in the office might be hurting your life.
We all know how stress can pile up at the end of the week. Often times we just put up with it, thinking that enduring long work hours is productive.
Contrary to popular belief, working 40-hours per week is not healthy. This could be due to the “running down the clock” mindset over “I need to do as much work as I can due to the limited time I have” way of thinking.
Companies who are serious about increasing the quality of work around the office should consider how time is spent while working, over simply lingering around when completing tasks. Studies have shown that shorter, more productive work hours are directly linked to work commitment and satisfaction. Employees are also less prone to sickness and anxiety.
In the end, shorter work weeks are a win-win situation for management and employees.
