- An estimated 18.8 million U.S. employees may miss work on Monday after Super Bowl LVII in which the Kansas City Chiefs landed a 38-35 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.
- The estimate, released by workplace research firm The Workforce Institute, is based on an online survey of more than 1,200 employed American adults, most of whom work full-time (74%) at a physical workplace (60%) and identify as a people manager with at least one direct report (62%).
- The survey found that roughly one out of every five U.S. employees (17%) — an estimated 26.6 million people — were likely to miss at least some work on Super Bowl Monday, or the so-called “Super Sick Monday.” This included a combined record-breaking 18.8 million employees (12%) not planning to go to work, and 7.8 million (5%) who said they planned to start work late.
