The Perks of Working from Home illustrates the advantages of working from home and suggests the telecommuting trend is on the rise. The infographic, courtesy of CarInsurance.org informs that from 2005-2012 the U.S workforce grew just three percent and those who telecommute grew by sixty-six percent. Furthermore, sixty-four million U.S employees are given the opportunity to work from their homes on a part-time basis.
Citrix Systems recently surveyed 1900 senior IT decision-makers in nineteen countries about the growing trend. IT executives surveyed believe that by 2020 there will be seven desks for every ten office workers. Approximately 29% of people in 2020 will work remotely–the majority from home, project sites, and customer/partner premises. Coffee shops, airports, and hotels will also be used while in transit, much as they are today.
Take a look at the facts and figures below.
