Say Goodbye to the 9-to-5 Workday

73% of bosses have a flexible attitude toward time keeping and trust that their staff is working before they get to the office.
No matter what time they show up in the office, many employees have been hard at work since they woke up, according to new research from data protection and availability firm Mozy. Mobile technologies—including smartphones, apps and cloud services—are helping workers stay connected day and night, turning them into productivity machines, according to the report, "The New 9 to 5". Around the world, the survey finds that the average worker first checks his or her work email at 7:42 a.m., gets into the office at 8:18 a.m., leaves at 5:48 p.m. and stops working completely at 7:19 p.m. In exchange, workers are coming in later and spending more workday time on personal tasks. "Workers everywhere are making the most of the technology available to them to build more flexibility for work and family," said Russ Stockdale, general manager of Mozy. "Hard work isn't going unnoticed, and mobile working and technology are having more of an impact on employer attitudes than people think." Nearly 1,000 workers in the United States, Britain, Germany, France and Ireland participated in the research.
