Are You Addicted to Work? (Infographic)
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, recruiting ain’t easy. Juggling clients, candidates and hiring managers, sometimes it can seem like there just aren’t enough hours in the day! So ask yourself this – have you ever found yourself sitting in the office at 9pm trying to get every last thing ticked off your list of things to do? If the answer is yes, but only once in a blue moon, there’s little cause for concern. But if you’re spending every waking hour at work and the rest of your time thinking about it, it might be time to take a step back and reevaluate some things.
Contrary to popular belief, more really isn’t more when it comes to working. In a 2014 study by The Economist, it was found that when you work any more than 50 hours per week, output starts to decrease significantly. Therefore all of those extra hours that you’re putting in burning that midnight oil aren’t doing you any favours!
So how do you know if you’re addicted to work? Well, if you’d consider buying a blow-up bed so that you could sleep in the office, it’s safe to say you might have a problem! But for the rest of you, Recruiter.com has created this handy quiz to help you determine your level of work addiction, as well as some tips to help you step away from the desk at a decent hour.
