Employees in UK not Even Getting Time For Their Lunch

Employees in UK not Even Getting Time For Their Lunch

The work pressure in the UK offices has forced most of its employees to have their lunch at their desk only. This way they tend to save few minutes every day from their lunch time and devote them towards accomplishing their official targets.

During a survey, in which 1,000 UK employees were asked about their official routines, it has been revealed that work stress here is so hard that 60% of workers instead of spending one full hour for lunch take less than half-an-hour for their lunch break. This equates to about 128 hours a year which is more than three weeks that they work free of cost.

In a whole, the UK offices’ employees work 16 days a year for free. This survey was conducted by Birmingham’s Aston University. Apart from this fact, it has also discovered that employees who somehow manage to escape from their work to meet some of their personal commitments; try to catch up their clients or other business contacts in the later day.

Considering all this, Dr. Patrick Tissington, of Aston University, who is a specialized in the science of workplaces, told UK’s The Sun that this trend is not at all beneficiary for the workers. Employees this way are risking their health by overstressing them and not having proper meals at proper times.
