The report polled 1,800 British expats between April and May 2013.

It has been reported in The Telegraph that nearly 7 in 10 UK expats have flexible working arrangements such as remote working or flexi time. Leading the way in this new style of employment is Australia, of which 85% have such arrangements, with New Zealand, the USA and Canada not far behind with 79%, 78% and 76% respectively. The report polled 1,800 British expats between April and May 2013, and revealed that 4 out of 5 respondents believe technology to be essential to their productivity at work. Furthermore, over 9 in 10 said they enjoy a better working life as a result of using technology.

The research also showed that the average office worker’s productivity per hour has increased by 84% over the past 40 years.

Renowned for their fast and efficient removals service, Interdean complete thousands of moves each year for those planning on working abroad. As such the recent survey was of great interest to the team and a representative from the firm shares their thoughts on the subject.

“This research suggests that technology has improved working conditions for both parties- employers and employees especially for those moving to Australia, New Zealand, the US or Canada. Whilst productivity is rising, it is easier for the modern expat to juggle their responsibilities, especially those with children. Flexible working conditions are an important deciding factor for many expats and we would recommend that those considering relocating take a look at the findings before reaching a final decision on where they plan to move.”
