New Study Shows Telecommuting Adds Five to Seven Hours of Work Each Week

Sometimes studies showcase results thereby proving what we pretty much already ventured to be true. This is one of them.

According to professors at The University of Texas at Austin, working from home equates to working more hours than in the office!

Per the results, more than 30 percent of participants who work from home actually tack on five to seven hours of work each week! This is compared to folks who work completely at the office. Furthermore, telecommuters are less likely to work a typical 40 hour schedule and more likely to work overtime.

Results published in the Monthly Labor Review revealed that telecommuting manages for work to bleed into personal lives. As per the press release, this reinforces the 2008 Pew Networked Workers survey from 2008 which indicated participants mentioned telecommuting technology boosted their working hours as well as the ability to work while sick or on vacations.
