What Working Families in the UK Want
The Working Families Campaign study also unveiled the following:
- Working long hours is a major contributing factor to unhealthy lifestyles, which include lack of exercise and poor eating habits, as well as higher levels of stress.
- Employees feel that they are working longer hours than they should due to heavy workloads and the 'long-hours culture,' a UK term for staying late at work, working weekends, etc.
- 45 percent of respondents feel they have no flexibility and have a higher level of resentment toward their employers regarding work/life issues.
- Half of the parents in the survey are unhappy with their work/life balance, and the majority feel that family and children suffer as a consequence.
