Companies today expect more from their employees and, for the most part, employees are willing to give it.
But it’s just as important for employees to play hard as it is for them to work hard, otherwise they risk burnout—and that’s not good for anyone.
Employees are routinely working more than full time.
Half of all full-time workers surveyed by Gallup reported that they work more than 40 hours a week, and nearly 40% said they work at least 50 hours a week.
During the recession, companies were forced to do more with less, and employees followed suit.
For the most part, budgets have recovered and business is picking up, but employees are still expected to do more.
