UK workers are failing to strike a work-life balance, with almost 40% claiming to work more than 60 hours a week.

A survey of 1,000 adults was commissioned by lifestyle social networking site It found that 45% of respondents claim to work in excess of the traditional average 40-hour week, and that 38% said they actually worked more than 60 hours each week.

The survey found that 87% wished they had more free time for a hobby or pastime. Only 5% said they have ample free time.

About half of respondents (52%) stated that work severely gets in the way of their social life at least once a week. An additional quarter of those surveyed (26%) said their career impacts on their social life at least twice a week.
