A recent survey from Accountemps shows that worker productivity actually goes up when the holidays hit.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year—for worker productivity? Professionals may simply be looking to land on the “nice” list, but 65% of respondents in a recent Accountemps survey said they get more work done during the demanding holidays.
While employees, in general, noted an increase in their work performance, there were differences by market. Among professionals surveyed in 28 U.S. cities, roughly three-quarters of respondents in Miami, Chicago and San Francisco believed they were more productive during the holidays. But only about half of workers in Boston, Des Moines and St. Louis said they experience higher seasonal productivity.
