A third of education professionals suffer from Sunday night fear

A third of education professionals suffer from Sunday night fear, with a further one in three calling in sick because of it but nearly three-quarters feel better once they’re ‘over the hump’ 
The latest survey from the UK’s leading independent job board, CV-Library, reveals that over a third (34%) of education professionals suffer from Sunday night fear; with 33.9% admitting that they’ve called in sick because they were too worried to go to work.  
The study, which surveyed 2,000 British professionals, finds that education professionals think that Mondays and Tuesdays are the worst days of the working week; with only 10.2% of respondents choosing either as their favourite day. 
Unsurprisingly, Friday emerged as the industry’s favourite day of the working week, with 51% voting it number one. In fact, nearly three-quarters (72%) of education professionals regularly get that ‘Friday feeling’ as the week draws to a close. 
Lee Biggins, CEO and founder of CV-Library commented: “If your employees suffer from Sunday night fear on a regular basis then it’s time to evaluate 'Monday this way' sign - suffering from Sunday night fearyour company culture. Employees that feel stressed are often less productive, less efficient and, as the data shows, are far more likely to ‘pull a sickie’.  
In addition to this, 72% of education workers said they feel better about the week once Wednesday is done and they’re ‘over the hump’. 
Biggins continues: “It’s important to encourage managers to discuss workloads with any staff members that appear to be struggling; and offer support where possible. By encouraging employees to foster a healthy work-life balance, you’ll be future-proofing your business by attracting and retaining the best professionals in your industry. However, if you neglect to look after your staff, you may find it difficult to expand your operations and reach your company goals.”
