Indian Execs work longest hours!!

I knew that when my boss, the Chairman and the CEO told me in my third week of joining on Monday morning – "Your job is 7 days a week, 24 hours a day…. I did not see you here yesterday!!" Plus we did not have any Saturdays off.. forget about lean Fridays!!

Business leaders in India and Argentina work the longest hours, up to 57 hours a week, according to a new survey by London-based consulting firm Grant Thornton International. The survey involved 7,200 respondents in 32 countries.

The report said that the business people in Mainland China, Taiwan and India experienced more stress at work this year than in the previous year. "With strong economic growth across Asia, more business people in the region reported an increase in stress levels," says Grant Thornton.
