Winter is the most productive time for employees of Russian companies to work with the most effective day on Tuesday, which follows from the results of the survey conducted by the Superjob job search service among 1,600 representatives of the economically active population of Russia on September 28 – October 4, 2021.
Most often, Russians admit that they work most effectively in winter (22 per cent). In spring and autumn, other 15 per cent of respondents feel enthusiastic about work. Summer appeared to be the least productive season of the year for work – only 13 per cent of the country’s residents feel satisfied with their life when working during warm days.
In turn, 35 per cent of Russians found it difficult to assess their productivity at different times of the year. The explanation is rather simple: as a rule, they do not associate their work efficiency with any particular season.
Of those who work well in winter the biggest share is respondents aged 35 to 44 years and those with an income of over 80 thousand rubles (25 per cent each). Spring mostly inspires women to work harder (16 per cent), while summer has better impact on men (15 per cent).
Besides, young people under 24 (15 per cent) more than others tend to choose summer as the most productive time of the year, even though it’s a traditional season of vacations and trips.
During the working week, the efficiency of work also changes, so every fifth person working on a five-day schedule with weekends on Saturday and Sunday claims that the most productive day is usually Tuesday (21 per cent). In turn, 15 per cent of respondents are most effective on Wednesdays, and 12 per cent, on Mondays. The rarest phenomenon is a hard work on Thursdays and Fridays – only 9 per cent and 8 per cent of Russians, respectively, work best on these days.
