Welsh employers should focus on the work their staff produce rather than the time spent at their desks, according to the Wales Trades Union Congress.They spoke out on the ninth annual Work Your Proper Hours Day, where workers are being encouraged to take their entitled breaks and leave work on time.
Welsh workers are going above and beyond the call of duty each year by working extra hours. They often aren't recognised for this work or credited for helping their businesses and organisations stay afloat.
Employers shouldn't be pressurising their staff into doing more for less. A significant part of the hours of unpaid overtime worked every year could be wiped out by smarter management practices, such as focusing on the work staff actually do rather than the time spent at their desks.
A long-hours culture is bad for workers' health and their family life - whether the hours are paid or not.
