Lunch breaks at work are increasingly becoming a thing of the past, with almost two thirds of workers regularly fail to take one, according to a new survey. One in five never take a break during the day, and a similar proportion couldn’t remember the last time they ate lunch away from their desk, found a survey of 1,800 workers by on-line recruitment firm founder Tony Wilmot said: “Lunch breaks are rapidly becoming a thing of the past. “With public and private sector organisations making cut backs, pressure on employees is increasing. Therefore works feel the need to work longer hours and ‘dine al desko’ in order to show employers their worth.”
