Working from home brings benefits
Companies are losing an annual average of 24 days of extra working hours by not allowing employees to work from home, according to the latest research by videoconferencing service provider�UCi2i.
The claim, based on a poll of 1,000 office employees in the UK, highlights the benefits of having a flexible working environment and the 'overtime' they put in as a result.
UCi2i has found that as many as 94 percent of UK office workers work better when they work from home despite stating they were not equipped with the appropriate technology to communicate with fellow colleagues (85 percent).�
When asked why working from home is so successful, reasons that were given included: peace and quiet for productivity (26 percent), spending the time they would be travelling to the office, working (18 percent) and allowing the ideal work/life balance (13 percent).
The study also highlights a series of 'over-workers', who added more to their companies by working more than five hours more per week.�These individuals were most commonly from industries such as finance (35.71 percent), manufacturing (36%) professional services (35 percent) and travel and transport (40 percent).
