Like the Germans, workers in Belgium aren't on the job much; their 1,550 hours worked every year (31 hours per week, based on a 50-week work calendar) is very low among OECD member nations. And Belgians definitely know how to spend their time well outside the office. According to the OECD, people in Belgium spend nearly 70 per cent of their day, or a whopping 16.6 hours, on personal care, which encompasses eating, sleeping and leisure.
