76% of the employees want a 4-day work week implemented as well, to reduce overworking.

The Instant Group provided suggestions to combat the overworking culture, including educating managers to spot overworking and burnout.

They also suggested creating a culture of “unplugging” after work, and on weekends as well.

Open conversations about work-life balance are also encouraged, along with offering more flexible working options.
