Americans are prepared to work hard—and they dream of being part of a winning team. These were the findings of a recent survey we conducted at Kimble. Around 7 in 10 U.S. workers said they would rather put in 50 hours a week for a growing company than 40 hours a week for a stagnant one.
This was a test question, intended to gauge how much people think it matters to work for an expanding business. The answer seems to be that it matters a great deal, particularly in the United States, where a significantly higher percentage ticked “yes” to this than in the European countries where we also carried out the survey.
