Employees enjoying a flexible work schedule will also bring some enjoyment to their employers—they'll work longer hours and be more productive.

A report from iPass finds that 75 percent of mobile workers work more hours due to workshifting—flexible work schedules that enable employees to work whenever and wherever they want. More than half (55 percent) were working at least 10 or more additional hours each week as a result of their more flexible schedules and 12 percent were working 20 or more additional hours.

No 9 to 5 situation here: 38 percent of mobile workers work before their commute, 25 percent work during their commute, 37 percent work during lunch, and 37 percent work at night— each and every day. This information comes from iPass's Mobile Workforce Report, which examined workshifting in today's workplace.
