Are You a Holiday Slacker?
If you feel a little lazy at work this week there's a good reason. No, it's not your annual turkey coma kicking in already, you just might be a holiday slacker!
Don't worry, you're not alone. With the Thanksgiving four day weekend right around the corner, the holiday slacker syndrome is spreading!
According to a new survey, 34% of employers report productivity being down during the week leading up to a major holiday.
Why? Because this time of year is generally less busy for a great number of employees. (Unless of course you work retail. Then you're working like there's no tomorrow!)
In addition to that, employees have more things going on outside of work, like family gatherings and parties that tend to take their focus off the job.
So, are you guilty of slacking off this week? Or is it business as usual in your world?
