Businesses may be interested to hear that over a third of workers would like the option of working from home, according to a poll conducted by the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP).
The study into flexible working options in the UK found that 36% of the 293 respondents liked the idea of working at home, but less than 10% had contracts that allowed it.
Diana Bruce, senior policy liaison officer at the CIPP, said that although the publishing of the Modern Workplaces consultation in May includes provisions for flexible working to be extended to all employees, a proposed reduction on the regulation of businesses could see the plans scrapped.
She added: “When the changes to legislation do take place, it should be remembered that it will remain a right to request, as opposed to any kind of right to work flexibly.”
According to a new survey conducted by TripAdvisor, around half of British workers are unable to stop themselves doing work when they are away on annual leave, with almost half checking their emails on a daily basis while on holiday.
