Fall is here, that means that the holidays are right around the corner! So currently, most people are looking at the calendar trying to figure out when is the best time to take some time off!
You all know nhow much I love finding different surveys, so they did new survey and asked people what happens when one of their coworkers takes a day off , it seems in most places, they need a better plan!
1. 53% of people say it makes their day more stressful.
2. 41% say they have to do extra work to cover for their coworker who's out . . . without any extra pay, obviously
3. 40% say the work they're covering doesn't always get done WELL.
4. And 37% have grown to RESENT a coworker because of all the times they've had to cover for them.
The survey also found 56% of people feel GUILTY about taking time off and having someone cover for them, 21% say the person who covers for them usually makes less money than them. Lastly, another study found women do about 10% more work than men, ALSO they're also ASSIGNED 10% more work than men.
