Survey: 76 Percent of Workers Are More Productive Outside of the Office

Seventy-six percent of 2,600 people polled in a recent FlexJobs survey chose anywhere but the office during work hours as the ideal place to get "important work done." According to the company's 4th Annual Super Survey, which asked respondents to choose "their location of choice to be most productive on important work-related projects," 50 percent chose their home, and 12 percent chose an alternate location such as a coffee shop, library, or co-working space.
