Hungarian companies that usually operate during normal weekday business hours get little done on Saturdays that replace a workday between a holiday and a weekend, according to an analysis by Bank Quarter Business Centre.
About 71% of manages and staff surveyed at 500 businesses said little is accomplished on these "workday" Saturdays. Few staff show up on these days, and those that do usually leave early. About 31% of those surveyed said the cost of operating on such days is not worth the business generated. Some even require staff to take a day off. There are five such workday Saturdays in Hungary in 2012.
