46% of workers confessed they would call in sick if England win the tournament
According to a poll made by office suppliers Viking , half of England Fans admitted that they would pretend that they’re too unwell to work if England won the World Cup.
46% confessed that they would call their manager and pretend to be sick so they can carry on celebrating if England won the tournament, with a further 16.4% saying that although they would come into work, they wouldn’t get much done.
Bunking off work because of a sporting event may not be a new experience for some, with 4 out of 10 people admitting that they had done so before.
Luckily, it doesn’t seem likely that people will be calling in sick after the final, with only 5% of those surveyed believing England are in with a chance of victory.
It’s not only the after-effects of a potential victory that looks set to pull people away from the office.
Viking’s survey also found that:
Claire Porciani, Senior Manager HR Operations UK & Ireland at Viking, said ; “it’s surprising just how many people plan to take time off for the World Cup. Hopefully, England will do fantastically, but we definitely advise letting your manager know as soon as possible if you plan on booking holiday so this can be approved and organised, meaning you can celebrate without worry!”.
