Working from home: the infographic

Spoken | August 9, 2016

How much of the workforce is going virtual, what is the productivity level of virtual workers and to what extent are businesses adopting this practice?

WorkSimple (social goal-tracking software), surveyed senior leaders and hiring managers at Fortune 500 companies and discovered quite a few interesting statistics. The doubts about working from home seem to have vanished, and the remote workforce is on the rise. Some of the more interesting statistics from the survey:

  • 76% of CFOs are planning to increase telecommuting and teleconferencing
  • 56% of decision makers believe that working remotely makes employees more productive
  • 62% of businesses surveyed reported having employees who work remotely either full- or part-time

While this was primarily a survey about beliefs rather than practices or real dollars spent, it does show the growing trend of acceptance of at-home workers and a recognition of the value and productivity that remote workers can provide.
