According to Human Resource Management the following is the breakdown for why people call in sick:
35% ARE sick
21% Have family issues
18% Have personal issues
14% Want a mental health day
12% Think they deserve a break
So a third are sick, a little over a third are dealing with issues, and little less than a third are taking a needed vacation day.
According to a study by CareerJournal.com and the Society for Human Resources…
40% of people have had an office romance AND 42% of those people ended up marrying a coworker
My take? People need to get out more. Picking a mate out of your dating pool is just a fact of life. Having a crappy dating pool is simply proof a not having a life.
