HR Strange But True!
March 02, 2006

Twelve percent of men and 7 percent of women admit to wearing nothing at all when working from home, according to a survey by Insight Express and SonicWALL, a developer of network security.

The survey included responses from 941 remote and mobile workers worldwide, 650 of whom live in the United States.

Many of those who are wearing clothes while working at home like to stay comfortable. Thirty-nine percent of respondents said they wear sweats while working from home.

Many employees who work from home think showering is optional as well, according to the survey. Just 44 percent of women and 30 percent of men surveyed said they showered on work-at-home days.

Twenty-one percent of workers admitted to sneaking in an afternoon nap while working from home. Eighteen percent of men and 38 percent of women said they regularly take breaks from work to do household chores. Twenty-eight percent of all respondents reported taking breaks from work to watch TV.

Despite all of those possible distractions, 76 percent of respondents said they believe working remotely improves productivity.
