Thanks to the pandemic, remote work has become a regular part of our lives, helping to save time that we usually spend on packing and traveling.
The study “Time Savings When Working From Home” shows that Spaniards save 63 minutes a day thanks to remote work. But Spain is far from the leading country in this indicator. Chinese residents, for example, save 102 minutes a day, while Japanese people save 100 minutes a day. The average savings in 27 analyzed countries is 72 minutes per day.
The irony is that most of the time saved in almost all countries is reinvested in work. To the delight of employers. In Spain, almost a third (31%) of the minutes that employees spent in transport and in the car on the way to work now goes to continue working. But Spaniards wouldn’t be Spaniards if they didn’t take care of leisure, so 41% of the time saved is still spent on leisure.
