Work absenteeism calendar: know the most missed days to work in Spain

first_imgWhoever says that he has just got up in the morning has not considered missing work, he lies. Although we have never done so, the fatigue we have when being freshly raised, makes our mind fantasize about some excuse for not having to fulfill our labor obligations. Image: iStock To risk losing your job for a few hours of rest does not compensate, but there are people who really do not think about that situation and do not care to tell a lie so as not to have to be in their job. The people behind the Zippia website have wanted to discover to what extent this fact is true and have carried out an analysis to find out which days people need more to work. To carry it out, they have analyzed the traffic of users who have received an article called “Three tips to warn that you are sick (even if you are not really)”. They have done so by comparing the number of users of a day with the number of those of the previous day so that no Google algorithm could affect the positioning of the article and therefore the result.Days may vary if there is a holiday nearby As a result, Zippia found that 20% of users accessed the article on Mondays of each week, while Fridays were the least popular days. There were also variations if there was a holiday nearby, such as the day after Christmas day that was the one that most people called to say they were sick.This analysis also resulted in the existence of 3 Mondays of the year in which the number of users increased in an exaggerated way but without any reason. These days were June 24, August 12 and October 21.center_img Risk of losing your job for a few hours off does not compensateThey wanted to discover what days people excuse themselves for not going to worklast_img read more

Located close together in the 16th Arrondissement of Paris, the properties mark yet another entry into a coveted market for global travelers by the brand, further propelling its rapid expansion in the first year. Launched in April 2015 as Starwood’s 10th brand, Tribute Portfolio is a collection of exceptional independent hotels and resorts, promising owners, Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) members and guests alike the ability to ‘Stay Independent’.“When we surveyed our SPG members back at launch, nearly 70 per cent expressed a desire to have a Tribute Portfolio property in Paris so they could have independent hotel experience when visiting this iconic city,” said Dave Marr, Global Brand Leader for Tribute Portfolio. “Filled with immense style and culture, Paris is the perfect fit for the Tribute Portfolio brand’s indie flair, and we are delighted to debut the brand in France with these two beautifully designed hotels.”Le MetropolitanDesigned by French architect Francois Champsaur, Le Metropolitan’s elegant and modern aesthetic brings the essence of Paris to life in a traditional 19th Century Haussmann-style building. The rooms and suites feature a soothing color palette complemented by hardwood floors, local artwork and views over the city. Guests can relax in the hotel’s pool and wellness centre before sampling local and Mediterranean cuisine in the property’s glamourous restaurant.Le Dokhan’sOriginally conceived as a private townhouse, Le Dokhan’s retains the feeling of an intimate Parisian residence. The hotel’s interior design was crafted by celebrated local designer, Frederic Mechiche, who stayed true to the property’s neo-classical style. A treasure trove of antiques, the hotel features an original Louis Vuitton lift cabin, hand painted friezes, custom made fabrics and works of art by Picasso, Klee and Matisse. Le Dokhan’s is also home to the city’s very first Champagne bar, where guests can still choose from more than 200 different varieties of premium champagne.Both hotels are located within easy reach of landmarks, such as the Trocadero Gardens, the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower.“We are honoured to be the first boutique hotels in Paris to join the Tribute Portfolio brand. Our family has been in the industry for three generations, and we share Starwood’s passion for excellence in the art of hospitality,” said Stéphane and Pascal Dokhan, Owners of Le Metropolitan and Le Dokhan’s. “Our historical boutique hotels are within walking distance from Avenue des Champs-Elysées and Avenue Montaigne. The heart of vibrant Paris is at your feet.”“Expanding Starwood’s portfolio in Paris has been a priority, and I’m thrilled that we can now offer our SPG members and global guests two additional properties that each come with their own personality and charm,” said Michael Wale, President, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Europe, Africa and Middle East. “The Tribute Portfolio brand’s continued roll-out reflects the growing global trend and traveller demand for independent, yet dependable high-end travel experiences, and we look forward to working with Stéphane and Pascal Dokhan to deliver truly indie experiences to our SPG members and guests.”Go back to the e-newsletterlast_img read more
