Monday after Super Bowl one of the least productive days of the year

Posted: Updated:

The day after the Super Bowl is a difficult day for a lot of people, and studies show it's one of the least productive days of the year.

The Workforce Institute at Kronos did a study in 2008 that suggests about 1.5 million people call in sick the morning after the Super Bowl. That study also found that about 4.4 million people come in to work late.

On top of being a rather non-productive day, it's also a bad day for businesses financially. Data collected by Challenger, Gray & Christmas shows that just today, $820 million is lost in productivity nationwide. That total comes from those not showing up, but also notes the amount of time employees waste talking about the game, commercials or their Super Bowl parties.
