Science Says You Shouldn't Work More Than This Number of Hours a Week

Science Says You Shouldn't Work More Than This Number of Hours a Week | General | Scoop.it

Do you work more than 40 hours a week? If you're an entrepreneur or small business owner, it's hard not to, but all that extra time in the workplace isn't necessarily a good thing. After a certain point, it can be counterproductive and even hazardous to your health, so it's imperative to know when to say no to more hours. 

 

Various organizations and independent researchers have looked at the physical, mental, emotional, and social effects of working beyond the standard 40 hours a week. Notable findings include the following:

  • Working more than 10 hours a day is associated with a 60 percent jump in risk of cardiovascular issues.
  • 10 percent of those working 50 to 60 hours report relationship problems; the rate increases to 30 percent for those working more than 60 hours.
  • Working more than 40 hours a week is associated with increased alcohol and tobacco consumption, as well as unhealthy weight gain in men and depression in women.

Timesheet Mobile's curator insight, June 27, 4:25 PM

In order to comply with the impending DOL overtime rule change, business owners are going to have to start carefully tracking employee hours. Compliance isn't optional ... and could present a major upheaval, depending on your industry.

 

Turns out, there might be a silver lining in restricting employee hours. According to research sourced by Inc., workers who put in more than 40 hours per week are not only less productive, but also at greater risk for a host of stress-related illnesses.

 

Keep headaches at bay, for both business owners and their employees, by implementing a time and money saving system for monitoring regular and overtime hours.

Why Free Is Not the Future of Digital Content in Education

Why Free Is Not the Future of Digital Content in Education | General | Scoop.it
As Chief Content Officer of a learning company, people frequently ask me: “Won’t all of your content eventually be free? After all, when technology enters the market, free is right behind it.” Then they’ll point to something like the music industry, where annual revenues have declined more than $20 billion from their peak over a decade…
