According to a survey by IWG Global Workspace, about 61% of office-goers want to include travel time in their working hours.
The travelling time to and from the workplace may add up to 4-5 hours to their working hours. “61 per cent office-goers from India believe that official working hours should include time spent on their journey to and from work. Also, 41% said commuting to/ from work is the part of the working day which they like the least,” IWG said in a statement, reported PTI.
One-third of people globally expressed their views regarding the importance of flexible working hours in order to maintain the balance between life and work. The survey also revealed that businesses which do not have a flexible workspace policy can risk losing out skilled employees.
