Millennials Set to Slack Following Super Bowl LIV

Nearly a quarter of business professionals (23%) think the Monday after the Super Bowl should be a national holiday, according to an Office Pulse study of 360 white-collar workers across the US.

The reasoning? It may be because a handful will be calling out sick, showing up late or coming in a little “tired” the day after the big game. In fact, 14% said they expect to be hungover or “extra tired” the day after the Super Bowl. That number rises to 26% when looking at Millennial professionals.

The game will have a ripple effect on workplace efficiency, with those calling out or showing up late costing employers a whopping $620M in lost productivity.
