Death of the Office?

The results of an interesting survey have just been published in HR Magazine. The study of 1,000 office workers was commissioned to mark the 10th anniversary of TV series 'The Office', which first aired in the UK on 9 July 2001.

83% of workers said they felt they were more productive now than in 2001, with innovations such as smartphones, Tablet PCs and cloud computing making it much easier to work without needing to be in the office. 56% of workers expected to see a clear reduction in the amount of time that they spent travelling to and from work or to meetings.
