Admit it. Nobody actually does any work from home

The Guardian’s ‘Most Honest Blog 2017’ Tutti Recruitti had a pint with Performance Excellence Expert Beatrice Jopely;

"We all love to rement about the extensive bundles of work we get done from home without the office distractions. What a load of utter crap. Are we seriously meant to believe this?

Do any office distractions compare to a screaming child, a grumpy other half, Netflix or alcohol?

I carried out a government funded study into 5,000 UK workers who claimed to WFH ≥ one day per week

How much work do you pretend to get done from home?

0% None

5% Some

95% Loads

How much work do really get done from home?

88% None

8% Some

4% Loads

Most common lies for WFH included; completion of a ‘critical’ project, confidential calls, and waiting on an large kitchen appliance/sofa being delivered

Factual reasons for WFH included; heavy drinking the previous night, catching up on sleep and being due a day off

People claim to be good cooks, people claim to be ‘social’ drinkers and people claim to get more work done from home. People lie”

Tutti Recruitti are aiming to raise £100 for charity

We don’t want to see people out of work! Especially the Drs, nurses, carers, lawyers, builders, cocktail waiters, masseurs, lollipop people and dare I say...recruiters of tomorrow!
