Friday 24th is Work Your Proper Hours Day
Tomorrow is Work Your Proper Hours Day
Over five million people at work in the UK regularly do unpaid overtime, giving their employers £23 billion of free work every year. If you're one, why not take some time to reflect on how well (or badly) you're balancing your life?
24th February 2006 is the day when the average person who does unpaid overtime finishes the unpaid days they do every year, and starts earning for themselves. We think that's a day worth celebrating.
Take a proper lunchbreak, not just a sandwich at your desk, and leave on time, to enjoy your own time on Friday evening. You deserve it! This is one day in the year for your boss to appreciate your efforts, and for you to appreciate yourself.
I'll be down the pub at 5:00 on Friday. How about you?
