'It is only Thursday!' Have you, in recent times, found that you are reminding yourself of this more often? Don't worry, it's not just you. As the hybrid mode of working is increasingly becoming the new normal, a LinkedIn survey has found employees in India see Thursday as the new Friday. No, this does not mean companies have started giving three-day weekly offs. It basically implies most people prefer working from home on Fridays which makes Thursday their last day of the week in the office.
“An overwhelming 79 percent of Indians say Thursday is the new Friday which may stem from the fact that Friday is the least popular day for workers to go into the office,” the LinkedIn report said, for which 1001 workers in India aged 18+ were surveyed between February 28 and March 6.
Of those Indians who say that Thursday feels like the new Friday, half of them say they would spend more time with family and friends on Fridays, while 46 percent would try to focus on finishing the week's work quickly on Fridays and hop into an early weekend, LinkedIn said.
