While nobody doesn’t like getting a pay raise, a new survey finds that a lot of people would prefer a different perk from their employer.
A new poll, which was commissioned byTrust & Willand conducted by OnePoll, finds:
- 57% of Americans say getting an extra day off each month for “life admin” tasks would be preferable to a 10% pay bump each year.
- They’d use that day on such tasks as paying bills, making appointments and more.
- Among the worst life admin tasks:
- Responding to messages and emails (31%)
- Making phone calls (31%)
- Reaching out to customer service (27%)
- Updating their planner (26%)
- Organizing files (26%)
- Even if they don’t get one, 46% of people say they already take an unpaid life admin day.
- Gen Xer’s are the most likely generation to have already taken such a day (54%)
And it seems such life admin tasks are proving hard for some people.
- 67% of people say they find themselves easily overwhelmed by them.
- 57% tend to procrastinate about doing them, even if they take just a few minutes.
- Tasks they are most likely to procrastinate about:
- Making medical appointments (37%)
- Renewing an ID or license (34%)
- Scheduling a haircut (31%)
- Updating or writing a will (31%)
