Research carried out by Avery shows that nearly half of British workers admit to emailing before they get up, working into their lunch break or taking calls after 10pm or do some form of work in their spare time.
The survey of 2,000 people also found that the average Brit spends 1 hour 13 minutes working outside of their contracted hours every single day.
Gregg Corbett, marketing director at Avery, said the results show is that the average person is finding it increasingly hard to achieve the right work life balance, meaning a little escapism from work is both needed and deserved.
"With advances in mobile and wireless technology, we're able to work almost anywhere and at any time - but just because we have the capability to work at any hour of the day, that doesn't mean we should," he added.
The expert advised staff to seek the perfect balance between putting in extra effort to get noticed and rewarded, and ensuring they still have time to enjoy their life outside of work.
