The report was carried out by Mozy.co.uk and shows that three-quarters of the 1,000 bosses polled admitted they have a relaxed attitude to time-keeping, as they know many staff will start their working day long before they step foot into the office.
Furthermore, a quarter of mangers are happy for employees to take longer lunches, while more than a third do not mind everyone enjoying office banter and regular tea breaks.
A tenth of managers of those polled said that they are OK with their workers carrying out personal tasks at work such as online banking, shopping and even paying bills while at their desks.
Flexibility is also being embraced, it seems, with the average boss happy for employees to working from home one or two days a week.
Claire Galbois-Alcaix, a spokeswoman for Mozy.co.uk, said the results are good news for workers everywhere.
"Hard work isn't going unnoticed and mobile working and technology is having more of an impact on employer attitudes than people think," she said.
"Bosses have come to understand that a bit of give and take encourages a loyal and trusted workforce."
