1 in 10 S'poreans lie to bosses to get off work: Are you guilty too?
Past research findings have shown that Singapore has the longest working hours in the world, but a new survey reveals that some employees use crafty tactics to secure that all-important time off from their jobs.
The survey of 1,000 Singaporeans, conducted by global travel search site Skyskanner, looked at the lengths Singaporeans go to ensure their holiday time off is approved.
It found that one in ten Singaporeans have lied to their boss to secure their vacation by claiming their holiday was already booked.
Nearly half (45%) of the respondents booked their time off over six months in advance to make sure their preferred dates were secured.
Another 6% of respondents admitted to pretending a family member was sick while 4% said they had paid or bribed a colleague.
Imaginary love was in the air for 4% of workers who admitted that they pretended to their employer that they needed time off to take a honeymoon.
The question remains, have you lied to get time off work?
