Interesting Fact # 934 - Work

According to the Office of National Statistics, centre staff take the most sick leave in the UK.

(A couple of years ago a similar Australia-first study of absenteeism in call centres found sick leave rose in 38 per cent of call centres. Staff took on average 75 per cent of their allowed sick leave. Whilst I was at university I worked in a call centre, and I can tell you, it's a sickening job.)
