It is with tedious, metronomic regularity that reports about malingering British workers appear in our business pages. Another one has come out this morning. PwC has conducted a survey which claims that a third of workers admit to ‘skiving’ – having time off sick when they were not genuinely ill. Consultancy firms know that journalists love stories about the ‘workshy’, they also know that – in most cases – their press releases will be picked up uncritically. However I have two problems with this one.
