"A fluid approach to working hours means that employers can access key resources when they really need them as well as allowing employees to manage their time during the day."
--Russ Stockdale, Mozy
While the majority of employers are fine with their staff starting their days later, in return they’re looking for flexibility over when they wind down for the night. Because of their relaxed attitude to attendance, many bosses are now comfortable with calling after hours. 80 percent say that they think it’s acceptable to call staff in the evening.
French bosses are the most considerate when it comes to calling and stop earlier than employers in other nations: the average French cut-off time is 6:57 p.m. By contrast nearly half (48.2 percent) of British bosses have no problem calling after 7 p.m., and in Ireland the average too-late-to-call time is 7:36 p.m. Hate to be employees of the 1.4 percent of bosses globally who have no issue with calling after midnight!
