Homeworking outsourcing company Sensée, has found that homeworkers are happier than traditional workers, even though they work longer hours.

Is it because homeworkers get to work in thei nude? Or perhaps they have easy access to the refridgerator, and last night's left-over pizza? Or maybe homeworkers prefer the cat to their boss?

Sensée write:

Despite opting to work more hours daily, the research found that home workers are happier because they’re empowered to choose the hours they work so they can still attend to family responsibilities. Three quarters of current home-based employees (77%) stated that working from home enables them to achieve more in their day, including caring for family members or friends, exercising more and further education.

They also note that although homeworking isn't for everyone, they found that over 80% of office-based workers would prefer to work from home, given the choice.
