People who have switched to working from home typically work longer hours
than they did when they were office-based.
Research from Norwich Union helps to explode the myth that working from home
makes for a cushy life.
Nine in 10 people working from home say they made the change for a more
flexible lifestyle or to spend time with their family.
But in reality, the majority admit they work longer hours than their office
In fact, two in five homeworkers say they work more than eight hours a day,
and more than three-quarters find themselves working at weekends.
The Homeworking Reality study reveals that the working week is longer than
45 hours for almost half of all employees working from home.
