Don’t Let Old Man Winter Be the Boss of You!

By Colleen Regan
Senior Product Marketing Manager

Being stuck at home due to bad weather used to mean a complete standstill in productivity – and some time to relax and maybe have a little fun. But with today’s collaboration tools, video conferencing and mobile apps, the old snow day isn’t what it used to be… or is it? We wanted to dig into the behaviors, expectations, and productivity levels of the modern worker while stuck at home due to rain, sleet, snow, or hail. So we surveyed over a thousand people to find out!

The results? People are having their cake and eating it too. Staying home due to weather does not slow down productivity – 80% of people felt they were equally or even more productive than a day in the office, citing less interruptions from colleagues, a quieter workspace, and no commute. 67% of people don’t even change their schedule – they keep all their meetings as-is, WFH or not! However, even with this positive productivity, people are still finding time to relax and have a little fun, like the good old days. Over half cooked, 40% took a nap, one third stayed in their PJ’s all day, and 26% went out into the snow and built a snowman!

Check out the full infographic below for the 9 to 5 of the modern snow day. And next time you’re stuck inside, try join.me to stay productive in your PJ’s.

    This is a fact of reality. People would rather work from home but do not think that they can be as productive at home just as much as they can on their jobs. Great article!
