Millions of UK employees are using mobile access technology to work at home on Sundays, while a large number are extending their working week by an average of two hours a day mainly from 7pm to 10pm.
According to research by virtual network operator Sirocom, 80 per cent of users log on every Sunday, and half access work systems on bank holidays.
The poll of over 30,000 users indicated that a growing number of people are using broadband and secure remote access systems to extend or blend their day and improve the work/life balance.
Tim Gain, sales and marketing director at Sirocom, said in a statement: "It's quite startling the proportion of our customers' employees who are busy on a Sunday and later on in the evenings.
"It's a far cry from the days when the weekends were sacrosanct, and the evenings free for ones own time. But there seems only one winner in the work/life balance: the company.
"On average our research indicates that employees who are given remote access are working nearly seven hours longer per week."
