How the 9-to-5 Came to Be and Why It No Longer Makes Sense (Infographic)

Everybody’s working for the weekend, but is it best to get ‘er done in long, eight-hour stints? Probably not.

Sourced through Scoop.it from: www.entrepreneur.com

As many readers can guess, the way the average workday flows has been of interest to me lately as I adjust back from being remote worker almost 90% of the time to being at the office 100% of the time. Part of what this info graphic fails to mention about the shift in how the workday flows is that long commutes were not necessarily part of the equation. Back in the Industrial Age, people lived nearby for the most part, so driving an hour to or from work in rush hour traffic didn’t fit into your day. I’ve horribly exhausted getting back into office mode, and realized that the breaks suggested in this article and info graphic were things I employed automatically when I worked from home. I guess I need to employ them at work more now! What do you think? Do we need more telecommuting options to balance this? Different expectations set from employers about our production?
