Skipping in High School
Stop skipping your lunch break, you’re working entire days for free
Get out and smell the roses
When was the last time you really, truly, made the most of your entire lunch break? I’m betting on not recently and pretty infrequently, as a new study has proven that at least half of Brits skip their lunch break at least once a week – and we’re losing an soul crushing amount of downtime by doing so.
Workthere commissioned a workplace study of 2,007 Brits to figure out their office eating habits. Sad desk lunches are more the norm than the exception, with 52% saying they forego their lunch break at least once a week and more than a third saying they never leave the office for a culinary change of scenery.
In fact, it turns out that people spend an average of just 34 minutes away from their desk to refuel andRefinery29figured out how that stacks up over an entire year. It’s not good news: according to their calculations, we’re losing out on 6,032 minutes. Which breaks down to roughly 100 hours. Which breaks down to 12 extra working days.
We’ve got a really bad track record of making the most of our work holiday allowance in the UK, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that we’re bad at taking our lunch breaks too. However it comes down to more than just culture, as 15% said they didn’t access to adequate kitchen facilities and a further 12% felt pressured to work through lunchtime.
The study also broke down which places and industries were most likely to grab a Pret and perch at their computer, rather than soak in the sunshine. HR professionals topped the list at 70%, with finance following closely behind at 68%. The arts and culture sector surprisingly came in at third place at 62%.
