More than half blame poor work performance on colleagues and interruptions.
The UK workplace is still to adapt to the new Flexible Working Policy, as 37% of Brits say their companies still do not offer flexible working hours.
The study conducted by Censuswideon, on behalf of Unify, also shows that 40% of the workforce believes their lives would be better if they never had to step into their office.
Robert Keenan, Head of Portfolio Management, at Unify UK & Ireland, said: "Employees are serious about finding better work life integration.
Company owners would benefit from 39% extra loyalty towards their institution if flexibly was to be offered; with 24% of respondents admitting in that situation they would recommend their work place to friends.
"Last year, Volume 4 of Unify’s NW2W (New Way to Work) Index revealed that nearly half of all employees would have chosen a flexible working arrangement over a pay raise, and almost a third revealed that they would change employers if offered flexible work elsewhere.
"For those employers that are serious about attracting and maintaining the best talent, it is time to start enabling new ways of working amongst employees," Mr Keenan added.
The research also found that 51% of all surveyed feel their colleagues and interruptions get in the way of completing their work. 30% mentioned commuting as another challenge in a corporate environment, with 22% admitting poor quality equipment and 14% saying poor communication infrastructure with colleagues that work remotely negatively affect their work.
"Flexible working is here to stay. More and more employees will be striving to achieve what they consider to be their perfect version of work/life integration. It is up to employers to find ways of enabling new ways of working while still ensuring that employees remain connected to each other and their clients," continued Keenan.
Working from home is a trend that 29% said they practice at least once a week, as a result, 39% of employees believe their home is the more productive place to work and reach goals.
Regular face-to-face contact with colleagues and clients was voted as the major positive aspect of working within their teams, along with sharing ideas and getting feedback on the go. Still, 31% of respondents would switch off email to avoid distraction, with 27% and 26% turning down instant messaging and social networks respectively.
"Communication and collaboration technology has come on leaps and bounds in a few short years, and it is from within the consumer sphere that these advancements have been driven," Mr Keenan continued.
"Traditional enterprise communications infrastructure has to catch up fast if employers hope to keep employees engaged and productive. Implementing a strategic flexible working policy, and finding the right collaboration technology, such as Unify’s Circuit, to support this, is one potential method of bridging this gap between employee expectation and company’s delivering on work/life integration requests."
The survey included more than 1,500 UK-based business consumers between the ages of 16 to over 55.
