Workers value time over money

Six out of
ten office workers would take a guarantee of shorter working hours over a large
pay rise, according to research.

The survey
by Microsoft Office XP shows that nearly 50 per cent of office workers claim they
stay in the office later than 6pm most of the time. One in six expects to stay
in the office until after 10pm at least once a month.

Lack of
valuable time with partners and families is the main complaint about working
long hours according to the Working Life Survey of more than1,500 office
workers.

28 per cent
are annoyed because they are missing out on sun and daylight hours.

The
findings support Microsoft’s nationwide summer campaign – Club 17:30 – to
encourage workers to leave the office on time.
