Research carried out by the Daisy Group, involved questioning 2,000 commuters and found that many people think doing work tasks on their commute means they can be 'firing on all cylinders' by the time they walk into the office.
Half of those who complete tasks on the bus or train say that the reason they do so is to get one over their colleagues before the day starts.
Andrew Goldwater, commercial director at Daisy Group, found that the average British commuter spends over an hour a day travelling to work, and the advent of mobile and cloud technology means this has become the real start of the working day.
"Because technology has come so far, people can do everything. The hour-long commute is a long time to be sitting and doing nothing. It is positive news that people can use this time more productively," he added.
