When given the opportunity, workers will typically jump at the chance to work overtime. Think about the man or women, supporting a family or a new child and how being paid time and a half — or more — is a great incentive for them. But, finding balance is key in allowing employees to work overtime. On one hand, the employee and the employer both win in filling much needed demand, but on the other hand, an employee working too much overtime can cause him or her to get burned out and de-motivated. The excitement of bringing home a larger paycheck will eventually wear off and become more commonplace as they work more hours.
