Description

"The UK's long hours culture is detrimental to the wellbeing of managers, and it's bashing national productivity. The lean and mean structure of business means there are too few workers to deal with mounting workloads,” said Sir Cary Cooper, professor of organisational psychology and health at Manchester Business School.

“Long office hours combined with the always-on expectation to answer emails is eating into home life, leaving managers with little chance of respite and increasing stress levels. Improving the quality of working life for managers will be a major step forward to solving our productivity crisis,” he added.
