Research finds employees work during commute

Working from home might be a suitable option for some busy employees as a recent piece of research has shown that some people work during their commute.

Conducted by Randstad, the study found that the number of Brits who work during their commute has increased from 4.8 per cent in 2008 to 7.5 per cent this year. It appears that advancements in technology are allowing more people to work on the go in 2013, with 18 per dent of workers stating that the development of tablets and smartphones makes it easier to work while travelling.

However, this has also meant that there is more expectation on some people, with one in ten stating that the availability of the technology has increased the pressure on them to work during their commute.

Mark Bull, UK chief executive of Randstad, commented: “In a tough economic environment, employees are under pressure to demonstrate their value to their employer and committed high-flyers are out to impress. This is manifesting itself as more employees working outside normal hours while they’re commuting.”

Working from home one or two days a week could be a good way for employees to get back an hour or two of time they would otherwise spend commuting and put this to better use working at a desk or simply relaxing.
