High flyers prefer less hours to pay rise

Nearly
two-thirds of corporate high flyers would choose a cut in hours over a pay
rise, according to research.

The
report by Barclays Private Clients, the wealth management arm of the bank,
shows that 62 per cent of the 600 respondents would prefer more leisure time
over a raise.

Over
80 per cent of the respondents would give up work if they could afford to do
so. The average income of the respondents was £92,000 a year.

The
findings support other research which suggests salaries are rapidly rising for
senior business people.
