No one can wait to get out of work on Friday afternoon, and new research finds the average worker mentally checks out of work at 2:39 PM on Fridays. The research comes from British Airways, who surveyed two-thousand office workers. Nearly half of respondents admitted they take Fridays easier than any other day, and six-in-ten said they feel entitled to do so because they work more than their contracted hours throughout the week.
More than 80-percent said their boss still gets “value for money” by employing them. One third of respondents said their workplace has a better atmosphere on Fridays, and 47-percent said their boss is more lenient on Fridays.
