A recent Careerbuilder survey paints a bleak picture of your typical telecommuter. The survey reveals that thirty percent of home-based employees said they found it too difficult to get dressed, so they stayed in their PJS all day.
Besides their penchant to stay sloppily dressed, the survey also suggests:
- one in five telecommuters cheat their employers by working an hour each day; 17 percent only work the bare minimum
- 40 percent work between four to seven hours a day and only a mere 35 percent give their employers an honest days work of eight hours or more.
- 42 percent of women and 22 percent of men work in their PJs (there's no mention of sitting on the couch and eating bon bons)
- 31 percent get distracted by household chores, while only 15 percent say their kids interfere with work
- 26 percent like to watch TV and another 23 percent play with their pets instead of doing their work
So what do you think? Is this survey misguided or are work from home employees really this slovenly? [The Register]
