Average office staff now works from 7.17 to 19.02Jul 4, 12:59 pm
London, July 4 (ANI): Rather than working a mere nine to five most of us are putting in a 12-hour day at work, a new survey has found.According to the survey, the typical employee works, in effect, from 7.17 am to 7.02 pm because they have mentally 'clocked in' before leaving the house and struggle to switch off when they return home.The figures show that Britons are, in their minds at least, at their desks before the French, Germans, the Irish and Americans, the Daily Mail reported.Additionally, 33 percent of people even check work emails before 7.30 am to get on top of their workloads. Such an increase in working hours is due to the rising number of mobile phones, which means bosses can contact employees when they like.Many begin their working day at 7.17 am by checking their emails - sometimes before they have even got out of bed.They then arrive at the office more than an hour later at 8.28 am and stay until 5.32 pm.The survey, by technology company Mozy surveyed 1,000 bosses and 1,000 employees in the UK and 800 of both across the US, Ireland, France and Germany, found that it is not until 7.0 2pm that they finally put down their phones and stop thinking about work. The average worker, based on global figures, show that the average worker begins checking their work email at 7.42 am.They get into work at 8.18 am, leave at 5.48 pm, and get "out of work" mode at 7.19 pm.Overall, Britons put themselves in 'work mode' seven minutes before other countries, with Germans mentally clocking in at 7.24 am, Americans at 7.33 am, the French at 7.48 am and the Irish at 8.02 am.
