NotBreaking the Habit


The average commute in Britain is now 30 minutes, according to a survey by Regus, the global workspace provider. This is an increase from 26 minutes in 2012, while 15% of those surveyed regularly travelled over an hour each way. The survey also found  that managers are most likely to consider employees arriving early and leaving late as the most hard-working.

Despite the rise in flexible and remote working over the past few years, these results show that in many organisations time at the desk is still valued more than productivity. Given the negative impact that excessive travelling time has on employee motivation and well-being, British companies still have a long way to go adjust to the new world of work.
