For some people, as the temperature goes up, their work ethic goes down. Digital media firm Captivate has identified one group who experience this effect most profoundly.
Dubbed "Summer Slackers," they're 260% more likely to take long lunch breaks, 128% more likely to plan personal trips, and 165% more likely to watch the Olympics at the office—and Captivate estimates that the latter affliction could result in up to $650 million lost in productivity for North American businesses.
72% of Summer Slackers are women. Half are aged between 21 and 35, while 58% are non-managerial. They're less likely to be married and more likely to come from a cold weather city.
