16-24 year olds are hardest workers

Younger office employees are far more likely to work longer hours and spend more time at work than their older colleagues, according to a new report.

The study, conducted by OfficeGenie.co.uk, found that workers aged between 16-24 average seven hours and 22 minutes overtime every week. That is a staggering two hours more than employees aged over 55. The survey interviewed over 1,000 workers in Britain, with 11% of 16-to-24-year-old respondents claiming to do more than 20 hours overtime per week , which is twice as many as any other age group.
