The report by recruitment consultancy Flexecutive
was published yesterday at the start of Work-Life Balance Week - now in its second year.

"One interim manager I know always takes the summer off to go on holiday with his kids," agrees Carol Savage, managing director of interim management recruitment consultancy Flexecutive
: worker who can choose hours and place of work due to the new IT
Bobos (yuppies with bohemian hippy-ish outlooks), Yippies (hippies with yuppie-ish outlooks) and Flexecutives
(the self-employed who work hard like yuppies for six months, and then take six months off to travel like hippies).
Of course, all this means that most flexecutives
(multi-tasking executives) are suffering from analysis paralysis (caused by too much information) which can lead to a severe case of presenteeism (reporting for work even when sick, for fear of losing one's job).
They are known as flexis - short for flexecutives
- the nineties answer to yuppies, with scruffier clothes, trendy jobs and a tendency to duck responsibility in their private lives.
