Workers urged to leave offices on time; InBrief.

WORKERS have been urged to leave their office on time today as part of a drive to highlight the damage caused by the UK's long hours culture.

Charity group Working Links organised the Go Home On Time Day to encourage people to think about how to balance their work and home lives.

Ideas include a senior member of staff having a "ceremonial switch-off" at going-home time and wishing everyone a pleasant evening.

A survey of 1,500 people for the charity showed that six out of 10 regularly worked late, with around half blaming their company's culture.

One in 10 said they never found the time to sit down with their families during the week.
