We are starting a new year but that doesn’t mean some of us won’t just fall right back into the same work patterns we used last week. According to a new survey of more than 300 companies in the U.S. and Canada, nearly two-thirds (65%) of respondents expect their employees to work more hours now than they did prior to the recession and see this trend continuing for some time. Working those long hours infringes upon not only our fun, personal time but just our time to get basic things done like buy food and clean our clothes.
Some of us feel like we actually live at our offices, not just during the week but on the weekends too. We may even keep more personal stuff there and have work bathroom routines. Sometimes we may even think it would really just be easier to sleep at the office. If you are thinking like that or doing any of the things we listed below then I wish you luck in 2012.
