Working at home one-day a week could save Brits up to £500 a year, says Microsoft.
According to the tech giant, the cost of commuting and lunch totals £2,000 a year for an average 48-week working year. By working from just one day a week, UK workers could save more than £500.
However, research by Microsoft discovered that bosses are not keen, with less than one third of UK workers being allowed to work flexibly, including working from home.
"With technology making it relatively easy to work away from the office, surely it's time to change our national fixation with the nine-to-five mentality?" says James McCarthy, mobility expert at Microsoft UK.
"Flexible working can help employers and employees save money and ensure companies are in good shape to succeed whatever the future holds."
