Research carried out by Doodle, which involved analysing the scheduling patterns of ten million global users, including 500,000 in the UK, found that the further the week progressed, the more likely people were to accept a meeting invitation.
The data indicated that Monday is by far the least popular day for work meetings to take place, with just 12.3 per cent of meetings taking place that day.
However, the first day of the week is the most popular day for scheduling meetings, with 30 per cent more scheduling done on Mondays than on Fridays, despite more of the meetings themselves taking place on the last working day of the week.
Tilman Eberle, a spokesman for Doodle, said that the further a week goes on, the more likely people are to accept a meeting.
"With people getting back into the swing of the working week on a Monday, they are less keen to accept newly scheduled meetings. The idea that people wind down for the weekend on a Friday does not appear to be true.
