More Garden Offices Articles People who work from home are more productive than their centrally office-based colleagues, a study has found.
A survey of 3,000 workers by labelling solutions provider Dymo revealed that people who work from home, such as in private garden offices, are actually less likely to spend their day surfing the internet and making personal phone calls than those working at corporate offices.
Indeed, the research found that while more than half of centrally office based-workers said they often send personal emails when they should be working, only 39 per cent of home workers said they do the same.
Meanwhile, just 35 per cent of home workers said they surf the net to kill time compared with 55 per cent of central office workers.
''While it might seem like it's easier to shy away from work when you aren't in the office, it can actually mean that many are working harder to prove themselves to their boss," said a spokesperson for Dymo.
''Working from home can also mean you actually get more work down as it's much quieter than a busy office.''
