Everyone is sure to enjoy celebrating today’s holiday, National Leave the Office Early Day. Observed each year on June 2nd, (unless June 2nd falls on a weekend, at which time it would be acknowledged on the closest working day).
National Leave the Office Early Day is an incentive to many who often work more than 40 hours each week. On this day, upon completion of required work and needed approval, it is suggested that you can then leave work early to enjoy the rest of the day with fun activities of your choosing.
The increase in productivity may transfer itself to other days of the week, where more can be achieved within the confines of a conventional working day.
Leave The Office Early Day can result in a sense of commonality between the stratified workforce, reminding everyone that they are in the same boat and striving towards a common goal.
Both employer and employee would be happy to see the end of the working day, after all, to leave the office environment and return to their own lives.
Is there a reason for this day? The effect is to create a sense of empathy between co-workers, whatever position they occupy in the workplace hierarchy, which leads to greater co-operation. Higher levels of co-operation in the workplace may lead to increased productivity.
More work done in less time is beneficial to the business seeking private gain, or to society or humanity at large, and Leave The Office Early Day is another chapter in the quest for maximum productivity that is as old as human industry itself.
