Mobile technology results in over three weeks of annual overtime for UK workers

UK workers carry out an average of three weeks’ work at home every year by checking their work email and taking calls - and many of them are using their own mobile device to do this.

A new survey sponsored by ‘bring your own device’ specialists Good Technology showed that 93% of UK working adults continued to work when they’d left the office. On average, each person carried on working for a total of three hours and 31 minutes each week; the equivalent of 23 extra working days every year.

Half of these people say they do the extra work to stay organised, although 20% are putting in the extra hours to impress their boss.

According to the Good Technology survey, the average UK worker checks their phone at 6.51am. 61% of people use their commute to deal with email, 37% admit they respond to business email from bed and 33% check work email on a Saturday morning.
