Imagine yourself in your own home. The alarm clock goes off, but instead of waking up, you hit the snooze button. Finally, you turn yourself out of bed, stretch your arms and get yourself ready for the day. No, there is no need to put a suit on: your office is down the hall.
You’re feeling a little thirsty, so you walk into your kitchen to grab a glass of orange juice. The phone rings, but you don’t necessarily have to pick it up: you can scan the caller id.
You eventually get yourself to the living room, which is where you get most of your work done. Your laptop is fully charged and ready for you to get down to business. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
According to an article, a recent study from the Cranfield School of Management, claimed that if workers are given flexible hours by their employers, they are more likely to work more intensely than employees with stricter office hours.
The way the report explains the concept is rather interesting. By the employer allowing the employee to have flexible hours at a remote location, the employee in return pays the employer back by working more intensely than he or she would within a rigid office structure.
Next time your boss tells you that you’re late to work, be sure to tell him that you work harder at home anyways.
