Tackling long-hour culture 'benefits employees and businesses'

Tackling long-hour culture "benefits employees and businesses" Posted by Editorial team

Tackling Britain's long-hour working culture could benefit personnel at all levels, it has been claimed.

General secretary for the Trades Union Congress (TUC) Brendan Barber said many employees are happy to put in extra time to help their companies, but taking advantage of this could lead to problems in the business.

"An entrenched long-hours culture causes stress, health problems and lower morale," he claimed.

This may mean honouring the TUC's Work Your Proper Hours Day, which is held today (February 24th) and sticking to the principles it encourages could improve time and attendance figures among staff.

Employers are being urged by the body to recognise the event, the aims of which are for personnel to take their breaks and go home on time.

Rob Holdsworth, senior campaigns officer at the organisation, recently highlighted that many employees are not actually being productive when they feel pressured to stay at work after hours, but are just too nervous to leave.
