How Much People Work Around The World [Infographic]

0

Forty hours is often considered a typical work week, but how often is this actually the case? To find out, GetVoIP compiled data about average full-time work weeks around the world and created this infographic. Northern European countries like Denmark and the Netherlands had the shortest work weeks, 38.3 and 39.1 respectively. Turkey had the longest work week at 51.2 hours. But the bigger question is does putting in more time lead to greater productivity and higher output? Not necessarily! A 2014 study by John Pencavel of Stanford University discovered that after fifty hours people’s productivity significantly falls. Long story short, working longer doesn’t necessarily mean working better. Remember to take a break when you need it – get a coffee, take a walk, chat with a coworker – and come back refreshed, because quality, focused time is better than long hours of wasted time.

Better health – One of the advantages that come with vaping is the fact that is poses a lower health risk and it can help to replace the feeling that smoking provides which in turn adds to the addiction.
