Company managers work extra day per week unpaid

More working hours, more pressure, no extra pay?!

A report has come out that suggest almost half of all UK company manages are working an extra full day in unpaid overtime every week.
The report explains that access to emails after work through smartphones and constant work pressure relates to over 90% of managers working outside their normal working day.

The report goes onto state that around 13% of managers work an extra 2 days per week in unpaid overtime.
The CBI, a Business lobby group has confirmed many UK businesses are addressing the issue of work pressures which is relating to managers feeling they are needed to work extra hours.

Two thirds of company manages feel pressure to work the extra hours, the institute of Leadership and Management has reported.
The hours are being spent on lunch breaks, early mornings and after hours in the evening. When you look at the amount of extra work carried out it really does add up.

It has always been standard practice for manages to work extra hours when the business is really under strain, but excessive hours are not sustainable and not good for staff health or morale. Decisions can start to be affected which will lead to a break down in performance.

A survey conducted on-line found that over 76% would regularly work late from home or at the office, and a further 48% would consistently work through their lunch break. This can be directly attributed to smartphone technology, which has helped access to work emails after hours, lunch breaks and even before work on the commute.

Counter productive

Working hours far in excess of the normal working week can really leave its toll on you. Employee burnout can lead to increased stress and further health complication such as depression and even physical sickness.

Smartphones can help benefit employees from flexible working, allowing them to reduce the work in the office and giving them flexibility to work from home which can lead to reduced stress. This can then have a real positive affect on the staff which can lead to increased business profits.
