There’s no place like home, say UK workers

The most popular place for UK employees to work is at home, a poll by a software company has found.

Click Software surveyed 1,000 workers and found that job location is the most important factor for why they stay in their jobs (57%). This was ahead of wages and job security, cited by 52% and 33% respectively. The poll was part of a competition to find the world’s most extreme work locations.

Regardless of the job involved, the most popular place to work is at home, with 60% of people identifying this location as ‘very comfortable’.

When it comes to factors affecting job performance, one in five people (20%) believe their productivity at work has been negatively affected by the location of their job. In the capital over a quarter of Londoners (26%) said that their productivity would suffer by working in a ‘horrible location’.

Young professionals are by far the most affected, with almost a quarter of 25 to 34 year olds saying their productivity is likely to be affected by a bad location. Over two-thirds of people (67%) revealed they have either considered or actually left a job, at least in part for a change in scenery.
