According to a new survey, the Super Bowl definitely affects productivity here in America …
- 59 percent of employees admitted to skipping work or showing up late the day after a major sporting event.
- 72 percent of human resources managers said they think the day following the Super Bowl should be a paid national holiday from work.
- Workers spent an average of 27 minutes each workday on "sports-related activities" leading up to a big game
Not surprisingly, men were more than twice as likely as women to call in sick or make an excuse for not showing up the morning after a big sporting event.
And, younger employees were most likely to miss a day of work. Lightweights. heee heee
Would it actually benefit businesses if we just called the Monday after a paid holiday ya think? I mean think about it, if we know we wouldn't be at work, we might in fact, work ahead and more work would actually get done than it does currently... What do you think?
