Win £250 Q-Connect Office Essentials
Does your home office or study need a revamp? Enter our new sweepstake for the chance to win £250 of Q-Connect work from home office essentials.
Do You Work from Home?
More and more of us now work from home. According to figures by the TUC, 1.5 million UK workers spend some, if not all, their time working from home. This is a rise of nearly half million compared with ten years ago and is 13.9% of the working population.
The trend is largest among women who find working from home more flexible, in particular those with child care responsibilities.
The most popular occupations for working from home include:
In addition to the current 1.5 million home workers, a further 4 million would like to work from home if their bosses allowed them to.
Where Do You Work from Home?
If you do work from home, where do you carry out your work day tasks? Do you have a designated office space or study? Or, is your home working space a little unconventional compared with a traditional office?
A recent survey found some rather interesting revelations about our working from home habits. 2,000 home workers were asked about their working from home habits.
Here are some of their admissions:
- 32% of workers aged over 55, work with the TV on in the background.
- 35% admit they do not even change out of their nightwear when working from home.
- 29% confess to working from their bed.
- 54% of workers aged 18-24 do not leave their bedroom all day.
For tips on how to make your home office more productive and to prevent you from curling up on the sofa with your laptop, take a look at our previous article, Organise Your Home Office.
