Have many times have you worked later than your contracted hours this week?

Well you’re not alone. In our survey of UK office workers, an enormous 86% of us stay late at least once a week. So it’s not much of a surprise that 91% of us find our jobs stressful. Staying late is one way of trying to deal with the backlog, whilst also trying to highlight to the boss that you’ve got a lot on.

And what comes as a result of stress, pressure and long hours? Burnout. Pure mental and physical exhaustion. In the infographic below, courtesy of Citrix GoToMeeting, you can see some alarming stats that indicate the state of workers in today’s rapid world of business.

But there is light at the end of the tunnel. Flexible working is one of the most effective ways to allow employees to manage their time, workload and personal lives and since the UK government introduced a new law back in June 2014 that allows staff to request flexible working, more employers are starting to make it a reality for many of us.
