Is It Time We Ditched The 9 To 5?

Over half of UK workers believe that the traditional 9-5 is an outdated concept, with three quarters admitting that they work better at certain times of day, according to a recent study from CV-Library...

The survey of 1,200 professionals explored how the nation’s workers feel about 9-5 working hours, and whether these are still fit for purpose.

The data revealed that two thirds (67.6%) would prefer to work hours that suited their natural pattern and when they work best.

When asked what time of day they are most productive, respondents cited the following:

  • In the morning – 64.2%
  • In the afternoon – 20.9%
  • In the evening – 9.3%
  • Late at night – 5.6%

What’s more, the majority (86.5%) of professionals believe that all businesses should offer flexible working, and yet only one quarter (27.3%) have the opportunity to work from home when they want to.

Those who do have the option to work from home were asked where they felt they worked best and interestingly, 17.1% said they work better in the office. A further 25% said they work best at home and the remaining 57.9% said they work just as well in either location.
