Coronavirus Survey Question: Are you working more or less hours per week since the quarantine started?

Every day, hundreds of thousands of professionals use Fishbowl, a workplace social network for verified employees. This allows us to survey these employees on trending, work-related topics. 

In our most recent survey, we looked to find out the difference in hours that employees are working between working from home and in the office. We asked professionals in Fishbowl one question:

Are you working more or less hours per week since the quarantine started?

The survey ran from May 14 to May 17, 2020 and professionals could answer with one of seven options: 

  • >10 hours More
  • 6-10 Hours More
  • 1-5 hours More
  • Same
  • 1-5 hours Less
  • 6-10 hours Less
  • >10 hours Less

The survey was answered by 16,585 Fishbowl professionals, from companies such as IBM, JP Morgan, Facebook, McKinsey, Deloitte, Bank of America, Amazon, Edelman, Nike, Google, KPMG, and thousands of others.
