What time do workers check on Friday?
What time do workers check on Friday?

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.
