Personnel Today report that measures taken by staff to emphasise they were actually working despite not being in the workplace included being “more responsive” on email, (36%), and working more hours, (23%). Despite the perceived pressure to demonstrate they were working, 30% said they felt happier while working from home, with benefits including having more flexibility in breaks, (65%); eliminating the commute, (52%); saving money (38%); and, being able to focus better on tasks (35%).
