Working from home means longer working hours for many

Are you working from home, but feeling more tired than you would be if you were at the office? Could this be because you’re working way more than hours than usual?

BUZZ Fam, you’re not the only one. As people around the world opt to work from home to help contain the spread of coronavirus, they’re clocking in more hours.

According to data from virtual private network service provider NordVPN Teams, people in the US are working for three additional hours. In the U.K., France, Spain and Canada, the working day has extended by an average of two hours, with many people starting work earlier than usual.

This is because employees have fewer distractions while at home. Also, the hours spent travelling to and from work are now spent just working.

Some people even start working earlier.

While this might boost your productivity, and that of your company, BUZZ fam, it is also important that even while working from home you do not blur the lines between ‘work’ and ‘home’.
