According to the latest quarterly Mobile Workforce Report conducted by enterprise mobility services firm iPass, there has been a 16 per cent rise in the number of such professionals waking up in the night due to the pressure they are under in their job since 2011.
More than half - 60 per cent - of all mobile employees now work between 50 and 60 hours every week, with Saturday and Sunday proving to be the most common days on which they choose to operate remotely.
Furthermore, in another sign of the stress mobile professionals feel, 21 per cent of the European contingent of such employees admitted they get up in the night to check their smartphones.
With such figures in mind, Evan Kaplan, chief executive officer at iPass, said: "This reinforces the need for IT departments to provide services that ensure high quality, safe and affordable global connectivity for their employees."
