Labor Day Weekend Definitely Impacts Workplace Productivity
Labor Day is pretty much the last hurrah of summer. Once Labor Day passes, kids who didn't already start school just before the holiday, do. The weather starts to cool down and most of us start the process of hibernating for the winter.
Red Bull polled a bunch of people about their thoughts on Labor Day weekend and the workplace and the results made one thing perfectly clear- your work is about to suffer because of Labor Day and your Labor Day is about to suffer because of work.
No surprise really, 48 percent of people in the United States admit that their productivity goes way, way down right before a long holiday weekend which pretty much means that you and your co-workers are about to start, if you haven't already, mentally shutting down because Labor Day is coming.
However, you and I don't get the last laugh. Not even a little bit. According to PR Newswire, another survey found that the average person will get slapped by an awful sinking feeling around 4 p.m. on Labor Day Monday when the reality hits that we have to go back to work the next day.
Another 11 percent of people are either terrified that their boss would find out they took the survey and so they lied, or they legitimately have no life because they said they stay happy until 7 p.m. on a day off. Yeah, okay.
