Research carried out by Glasgow-based firm Demon Broadband indicates that six out of ten workers will even do some form of work, such as checking emails, on Christmas Day itself.
According to the data, for the number of people working during their Christmas holidays in 2010 will be 15 per cent higher than last year.
Matt Cantwell, head of Demon, told the Scotsman that the results demonstrate the UK's growing dependence on flexible working in all sectors, which includes sale recruitment.
"It's also clear that we're increasingly dependent on technology to support our preference for flexible working. With winter illness and snow chaos, remote working is no longer a 'nice to have', but a necessity," he explained.
Recently, a poll of almost 3,000 UK SMEs by Orange found that three-quarters of these businesses are planning to introduce flexible working options in 2011, with staff efficiency being the main driver of this.
