According to a new survey from CareerBuilder, nearly 3 in 5 workers (59 percent) believe the traditional 9-to-5 workday is a thing of the past.
- Nearly half of workers say they complete work and check emails outside of office hours.
- Workers aged 45 to 54 (65 percent) and 55 and older (61 percent) particularly agreed that the typical eight-hour work day was a thing of the past.
- Only 42 percent of workers aged 18 to 24 say the traditional 9-to-5 workday is outdated.
Rosemary Haefner, chief human resources officer for CareerBuilder, in a news release, “Not surprisingly, younger workers ‘attached to their mobile devices’ are more likely to work and check emails past business hours, while older workers feel less pressure to check-in after they have put in a full day of work.”
