Doncaster workers contributed to Â£10.8 billion loss to the economy by leaving work just 14 minutes early
Workers in Doncaster cost the economy almost Â£200 by leaving their desks early during the summer heatwave, a study has found.
The survey, carried out byÂ Indoor and outdoor heating specialistsÂ Heat Traders, found that by leaving work just minutes early each day during our record-breaking hot summer, workers in the borough cost bossesÂ Â£182.92. The data, which was collected by questioningÂ 2,200 employees countrywide about their habits between June and August,Â found that Doncaster workers left 14.1 minutes early each day over the summer, on average. The study did find, however, that Doncaster workers were prepared to stay at their desk during the sunshine longer than workers in any other partÂ of country, with the amount of time they took off the end of their working day being the least. Workers in the West Midlands took the most time off left, abandoning their desks 23.5 minutes before they were dueÂ to clock off in favour of soaking up some summer sun. Across the country, early finishes cost the UK economy Â£10.8 billion. Â
