Who works the most in Europe?

Surprisingly it is not the Germans!  We’ve undertaken an analysis using data from the Office for National Statistics.

We have analysed the data based on employment type, productivity and by sector.

Austrians work the longest hours, 43.7 per week, and surprisingly share the top spot with Greece. This compares with 42 hours in Germany and 42.7 in the UK. Danes seems to have a good work life balance claiming the bottom of the league with 39.1 hours.

A better indicator of work completed is productivity per hour (with 100 representing the EU average). This is lead by the Netherlands and France and Germany, UK just above EU average, Greece way down the list, and Romania claiming the worst spot.
