World Cup sees firm sick as a parrot

Full marks must go to Tenon this week for making the most of the World Cup before it’s begun. TS wondered how long it would take for someone to push the ‘productivity lost through World Cup sick days’ story, and Tenon has not disappointed. They say the beautiful game’s biggest tournament will cost UK plc £500m in sickies and low productivity. But the firm’s CEO,

Andy Raynor, says World Cup hangovers will be dealt with by forcing the offending worker to run round the car park or play in goal for the firm’s team. Mind you, he adds, if he can’t beat them he’ll join them ­ which begs the question of whether the real drop-off in productivity next month will sit squarely on the CEO’s desk?
