The employees who “stumbled” the most from work between Christmas and New Year

Consulting, agriculture, the goods-producing industry, local government and trade are the sectors in which more than half of the Romanian employees took leave between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, according to an analysis by Creasoft.

Thus, a percentage of 88% of the employees of the consulting companies made a “bridge” between Christmas and New Year. In agriculture, 73% of employees took leave in the last week, and in the goods-producing industry the percentage was 64%. In town halls and in the public administration, one in two civil servants (51%) took legal leave between Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

“The peak of activity in consulting companies is April-May, therefore, during the winter holidays, the activity in these companies is lower and this explains the numerous requests for leave. Beyond the budget sector, where the so-called “bridges” are also encouraged by legislative measures, the behavior of Romanian private employees is beginning to change. I’ve noticed that employers are more lenient with employees who take time off to stick on weekends with public holidays that fall during the week, for example, and often no longer ask people to sacrifice their legal holidays for these mini-holidays. holidays “, said Adrian Dinu, the founder of the software company.

Every year, Romanian employees are entitled to 20 days of rest leave, according to the Labor Code. As a rule, rest days are based on a negotiated schedule between the employer and the employee, and the employer must ensure that each employee manages to take at least 10 working days of uninterrupted leave in a calendar year.

On the other hand, in the top sectors with the fewest employees who took leave between the winter holidays are debt collection agencies and credit reporting offices (where only 22% of employees took leave during the period 27- December 31), food and restaurant industry (23%), textile industry (35%) and IT (39%).

“In highly regulated industries, such as the financial services or gambling industries, but also in those with peak activity during this period – such as the food industry or restaurants – employees were forced to come to work in a more to a large extent than in other fields because otherwise the company’s activity would have suffered. Employees who work, even on public holidays, are additionally rewarded by the employer “, added Adrian Dinu.

During the winter holidays, the days off for employees regulated as public holidays are December 25 and 26 – Christmas and January 1 and 2 – New Year.

For employees who worked remotely during this period, such as the IT sector (where one in two employees worked between Christmas and New Year), the average working time was five hours, down from the usual period. , when they worked, on average, six hours a day.

The analysis was performed between December 27 and 31, 2021 on a sample of 100 client companies that have between 20 and 2,000 employees, from 15 sectors of activity.
