Is TGIM turning over a new leaf….er… page on the calendar?

This just in: Mondays are out and Tuesdays are in!

Well, in Britain that is…

The Globe and Mail ran a brief on Friday revealing some new stats: According to a recent survey conducted by a company called Peninsula in Britain, nearly half (48%) of British workers now consider Tuesday to be the most productive day of the week, beating out Monday for the first time. 

Apparantly this is a reversal from five years ago, when 36% chose Monday and only 24% said Tuesday was the hardest day of the week.

Why the switch? According to Deb Gibbons, head of employee relations for Peninsula, Mondays tend to be the day for more socializing, catching up, greater levels of sickness and absenteeism, etc… “the real work gets done on Tuesday”.

Absenteeism, sickness…..on Mondays?????  Well, that’s not good! Sounds like a call for some TGIM boosting wouldn’t you say???

So maybe we’re not so passe after all. Maybe I’ll keep the name of this blog afterall. TGIT (thank goodness it’s Tuesday) just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

In any case, wishing you a TGIM day on this lovely holiday weekend Monday  (in Canada anyways).
