A recent survey of 4,500 Australians as part of a global study by Kelly Services found that unusual approaches to work are increasingly becoming the norm. Long or unusual hours were cited by 30% of respondents, 20% had multiple jobs, 9% required living away from home and excessive travel was an issue for 8%.
