It's well known that Americans put in long hours at the office. But now, thanks to an infographic from tribeHR using data from the OECD, we can compare it to other countries around the globe.

It's not Americans that work that longest days of any country, however. That dubious honor goes to Mexico, whose citizens work an average of nearly 10 hours per day. U.S. workers, on the other hand, work 8.3, despite many top-level employees viewing a 40-hour work week as part time, according to a July report from the Center for American Progress.

And who's the easiest going of all surveyed countries? That would be Belgium, seven-hour workday and all.

Below is the infographic showing which nations work the longest hours from tribeHR Human Resources Software:
