Your commute to work may affect how you feel about your job.

Almost half of the people surveyed in a study conducted for a workplace think tank said commuting has a significant impact on their job satisfaction.

Fifteen percent of those surveyed said they would change jobs for a shorter commute.

The study says allowing employees to commute at non-peak hours or work from home increases their job satisfaction.
