Remote working is on the rise. But is it good for your business?
Between 2005 to 2017, there was a 159% increase in people working from home.
In 2015, 3.9 million U.S. workers were working remotely. As of April 2020, that number is now over 5 million — and, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, that number has risen hugely, with a number of business switch entirely to a remote workforce.
The good news is, employees are happier and more efficient when they’re permitted to work remotely. In fact, 80% of polled remote employees say they’re more productive when working from home.
Still not sure if remote work is for your business?
Examine that even in the best of times:
- 76% prefer to be away from their office when they need to concentrate on a project.
- 23% of remote workers say they work longer hours than they would on-site.
