Help My Career: Commuting takes a significant bite out of the average worker’s day. What do remote workers do with that extra time?


As more employers tell their white-collar workers to show up at the office more often, a new study shows the how much time they spend on those commutes.

Working from home saves workers an average of 72 minutes per day, and a good chunk of the time that would otherwise be spent in a car or on public transit is often devoted to job-related activities, according to researchers who analyzed time-use data from people in 27 countries. In the U.S., the time saved by not commuting is 55 minutes per day, the study noted.
