Lost work hours from one snow day costs NE employers $1.3B. Yet another reminder of the need for remote work practices.

"Research just released by Global Workplace Analytics estimates a single snow day can cost Northeast region employers over $1.3 billion in lost productivity. That estimate is based on Global Workplace Analytics’ research about who can, who wants to, and who already does work remotely in the District of Columbia, Philadelphia, New York and Boston metro areas."

New report shows 39% of managers want to restrict after-hours email

According to the 1,574 managers we surveyed for our latest Quality of Working Life report, they’re working, on average, an extra 60 minutes every day on top of their contracted hours. In total this equals 29 days a year, which effectively cancels out the typical holiday entitlement of 28 days.
