Work At Home? Let’s Talk Dirty

More than half the women and two thirds of men don’t shower on work-at-home days according to a survey conducted last year by research firm Insight Express for security systems vendor SonicWall.

What’s more, one in eight male teleworkers and one in 14 female teleworkers say they do their jobs in the nude.

Now don’t take this wrong, but SonicWall’s survey also showed that eight-eight percent of the 941 people interviewed admitted they store passwords in unsafe spots. Um, you don’t suppose they mean . . . ? Naw.

But all that doesn’t keep them from being productive–possibly even reproductive. Seventy-six percent of those surveyed said working at home makes them more productive and thirty-five percent of those interviewed in an InnoVisions Canada survey said their love lives were positively affected by working at home. Figures, if you’ll pardon the expression, since teleworkers are less stressed, have more free time together, and they’re closer to the bedroom.

Remember, the (ahem) behind the scenes story of The Emperor’s New Clothes fairytale is that he worked from home!
