Have you developed a working long-hours habit?

image001Regularly staying late at work, or working excessive hours can have a negative effect on you, your family and performance at work.

Why not join the Working Families Go Home On Time Day 2017 on 21 June 2017 and start a new habit to last all year round. The day is a lighthearted way to make a serious point – while working late is sometimes needed to get the work done, it shouldn’t be the norm. It’s a chance to challenge a long-hours culture.

Working Families has lots of free resource and guides for staff and managers to help support well-being in the workplace, and don’t forget the University also has its own Health and Wellbeing web page, as well as information on the HR web page Ensuring Wellbeing.

So why not use this week to check them out.

  1. I find this communication somewhat ironical. A problem that we have in the Economics and Finance Group in the Portsmouth Business School is that academic staff do not spend sufficiently long at work. If you pay a visit to the fourth floor of the Richmond Building then you will find largely unoccupied staff offices. I would like to believe that absent staff are working hard in a study room at home, but the evidence does not support this.
