O2 survey

Working flexibly with a coffee

Posted on Updated on

coffee_table_talk_PA_500_wht_6082Brits have now gained the right to have flexible working after 26 weeks of employment but a survey by O2 found that half of us would rather work from a cafe.

They found the environment more conducive to working productively than in an office.

2 in 5 of us spend more than 4 hours a week working from a coffee shop adding up to millions of hours each week and 1 in 4 of us would choose to work there if they had the option.

The smaller the company the more likely it is that they will work in this way, about a fifth compared to 1 in 7 from larger companies.

Almost 1 in 3 self-employed people use coffee shops as their base while others use their homes, trains or the local pub.

It seems more people are working away from the office but working from home does have its downsides.
