Apparently if your employees are not working from home, you must expect them to be “homing at work”.
A staggering 93% of people surveyed are now taking care of personal and family matters during the workday direct from the office. The number of people who are running personal errands during the workday has increased by 31% in the last two years alone.
This increased flexibility is apparently why people are more comfortable with putting in increased hours in their workday. The internet also means that personal tasks can often be completed without even having to leave your desk. Nearly 70% use their work computers to complete these tasks.
