Of course it is dangerous to apply the findings of one employer’s staff members to other organizations. However, the experiences of 24,436 IBM employees in 75 countries as reported by Brigham Young University (BYU) researchers, find employees who telecommuted at least part of the time said they could maintain work/life balance while logging up to 57 work hours per week.
On the other hand, office workers on a regular in-office work schedule said that their breaking point (not keeping work and life balanced) was 38 hours of work per week. The results of this study certainly provide food for thought for other employers.
