Working long hours is no indication of how hard someone works, according to a new survey.
The survey, from T-Mobile and Kingston University Business School, shows that 59% of employers do not think how long employers work is an indicator of how hard they work, while 46% of employers offer no reward to those who work late or more than their normal hours.
Ollie Chivers, head of business marketing at T-Mobile UK, says: "It is encouraging to see that employers are increasingly aware that staff do not need to spend all night in the office to be productive and do their jobs effectively. In fact we've found that people think they are more productive when they work away from the office, and mobile working has a clear role to play in tackling the UK's notorious long hours culture. These findings are good news for all those who already enjoy the flexibility of working outside of the office, and give food for thought to those employers considering how to increase productivity without damaging morale."
