Pass it to your boss

Traditional working schedules are being reassessed in front of the increased adoption of mobile technology: employees and execs consider work as something they do, rather than a place they go to.

Destination Wireless, a study conducted for Intel by the Economist Intelligence Unit found that 74 per cent of the respondants think the nine-to-five-routine is no longer relevant, and are as productive working outside the office as they are in it.

Average working days are longer, and more fragmented. Surveyed said they spent up to a third of each day out of the office, and that they expect this proportion will increase.

The research shows that most executives (61 per cent) work as part of a virtual team. 37 per cent say their main contacts at work are remote colleagues.
