Many workers 'putting pressure on themselves to do extra hours'

Nearly a third of professionals put in an extra six hours every week to keep abreast of their workload, new figures show.

A report from Kelly Global Workforce Index (KGWI) revealed 28 per cent of staff work more hours than they are paid for and 39 per cent of employees say they put the pressure to stay connected when they are outside of the office on to themselves.

The introduction of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets has certainly changed the working habits of many, with 19 per cent of people stating it has increased their job security. However, 38 per cent feel it has contributed to the likelihood of burnout.

"It is becoming increasingly important that employers keep in close contact with their workforce, making sure they are offering the support and encouragement their workers need," said Gary Jones, managing director of KGWI.

He added that the traditional nine to five model has largely disappeared.

With consultants that are British Psychological Society (BPS) level A and level B accredited Aaron Wallis are able to offer a wide range of psychometric tools, personality tests, aptitude tests and ability tests.
