Planning on working overtime? Or demanding that your staff do? Not good idea if you want them to stay alive. New research links overtime to heart damage

Did you know that 1 in 3 women will suffer a cardiac event in their lifetime, compared to 1 in 25 women who will get breast cancer, according to Professor Linda Worrell-Carter at our August Ascend development day in Melbourne. New research at the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health at University College, London the higher stress levels and less time to look after your health that come from working overtime make working long hours a considerable risk for heart disease.
