Remote Working’s Longer Hours Are New Normal for Many

The lengthening of the work day observed as many began working from home last year has become the new normal in many countries. The number of hours people are logged on has fallen back toward pre-pandemic levels in only Belgium, Denmark, France and Spain, according to data from virtual private network service provider NordVPN Teams. The U.K., Austria, Canada and U.S. have seen a sustained 2.5 hour increase to the average day.
