India leads the way as the hardest working country with 69 percent of full-time employees saying they would work five days a week even if they had the option to work fewer days for the same pay, according to a survey.
Mexico was the second-highest at 43 percent of workers, followed by the US at 27 percent, according to the culture study survey by US-based multi-national workforce management firm Incorporated.
A survey research was conducted by Future Workplace on behalf of Incorporated on 2,772 employees. It surveyed full and part-time employees living in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, India, Mexico, the UK, and the US. The survey also found that one-third of employees (35 percent) would take a 20 percent pay cut to work one day less per week.
The US leads the way with overtime, as 49 percent clock more than 40 hours each week, followed by India (44 percent), Mexico (40 percent) and Germany (38 percent), it added. “It’s clear that employees want to work and do well by their employers, and many roles require people to be present or on call during specific hours to get the job done such as teachers, nurses, retail associates, plant workers, delivery drivers, and nearly all customer-facing roles,” executive director of The Workforce Institute at, Joyce Maroney said.
