Yes, it’s a thing: Today is National Leave the Office Early Day!
June 2 is when workers can take some time for themselves and get out of work earlier than normal… Just be extra cautious and make sure you get permission to celebrate!
The National Day Calendar website says National Leave The Office Early Day was created by Employee Productivity Specialist Laura Stack.
“It’s not about changing jobs or being less productive,” Stack told ABC News in 2005. “It’s about being more productive in the hours that you’re actually scheduled to work.”
National Leave The Office Early Day also shares its day with National Rotisserie Chicken Day and National Rocky Road Day. So maybe if you can manage to get out of the office a bit early, you can make a special dinner with chicken and Rocky Road ice cream.
