Do you work on weekends? Survey results


    In April, conducted a survey of the Habrazhitel “Do you work on the weekend?”. I got to the tabulation results. Below are the main characteristics obtained as a result of the survey, as well as the main disagreements that arose during the discussion of this issue.


    Survey results: The

    survey with discussion is located at the link “Do you work on the weekend?”

    2869 Habrazhitel took part in the survey, 423 people abstained.

    If we divide all the questions into the categories “work” and “do not work”, we get the following schedule:

    This schedule can only reflect the general ratio, it is not accurate, since multiple voting was allowed in the voting.

    Single line statistics

    More than 28% of the votes were cast by people who were ready to work at the request of management in the face of tight deadlines.

    Only 13.03% of those who voted have a free schedule, which is a bit strange, considering 24.26% of those working at home.

    12.26% are ready to work on weekends for the opportunity to leave work on a weekday.

    Every twelfth IT specialist lives at work, and every nineteen unemployed, or considers himself as such.

    Only 61 people work in some kind of regime enterprise, where everything is closed on weekends and you need to write a lot of paper before you are allowed to work.

    Most of the voters live in close proximity to work to calmly arrive at the right time.

    Not working on weekends due to family circumstances gained a little less than three percent (2.92%).

    12.26% of respondents work on weekends due to the absence of other colleagues at work (“no one distracts”).


    There were a lot of disagreements. First things first.

    There were people who could not determine their day off, in view of his absence or work with a shift schedule. This suggests that, even working on weekends, and resting on weekdays, the majority of people consider weekends (Saturday, Sunday) the best for relaxation.

    Close people contribute to rest, even during working hours, it will not work with them.

    A lot of workers work on weekends and holidays without an increased rate (freelancers are not included in the calculation).

    I recalled the Pareto principle, when 20% of efforts bring 80% of the result, but almost all agreed that 40 hours a week is only for survival, everything else is for success (part-time job, own projects, etc.).

    Revealed a lot of workaholics who have forgotten what a weekend is.


    As a result of a survey among the population of Habr, it became clear that work on the weekend has many positive aspects, and is not something shameful. If the employer allows you to work at any time of the day, pays overtime, allows you to work remotely, then the motivation of employees increases, they begin to adjust the schedule to their needs. Of course, freelance proudly voted that he works at home as much as he wants)
