About two in five respondents in a survey here said that they would not accept a job if they were unable to work from home or anytime they wanted.

A similar proportion also said they would rather be unemployed than feel unhappy in their job, while about half of those surveyed insisted that they would quit their job if it prevented them from enjoying life.
