Would you accept a day off from work...if you're tired?
It's safe to say that many of us would love the luxury of a day off work every now and then. But how would you feel if your employer offered you a wellbeing day, effectively allowing you to call in sick...with tiredness? This is a measure being proposed by think tank, the Institute of Public Policy Research, or IPPR, who believe employers should be looking more into their employee's wellbeing. Share Radio's Sara Macham spoke to Joe Dromey, one of the authors of the report, about how this would reduce the number of people receiving long-term sickness benefit.
