Worcester is among the cities where workers do the longest hours, according to a new survey.

Office workers in the city work an average of 7.3 hours a day - the highest average in the UK alongside Oxford and Sheffield.

A survey of 2,000 workers commissioned by Office Freedom, an office space rental agency, also found that 80 per cent of respondents work longer than their contracted hours.

Between genders, men are more likely to work overtime, with 28 per cent saying they work more hours than contracted to every day, compared to 13 per cent of women.

Contributing to the long working day is a short average lunch break.

63 per cent of workers take a maximum of 30 minutes for lunch, with the longest break taken in the West Midlands and the shortest, at an average of 25 minutes, in the South West.

A third of workers surveyed are taking longer lunch breaks when working from home.

Since working from home, and in particular, hybrid working was introduced, most employees report enjoying working more than previously. 42 per cent would also feel disappointed at a return to five days in the office.
