Will long commutes negatively impact an employee's opinion of a company?
According to a study done by Clutch, 29% employees often work from home while 18% work from either a coworking space or a public free space such as a coffee shop or library. These numbers point to a rising trend of working outside a normal office.
At least 54% of employees with the option to telework, say they are most productive when they work outside a traditional office environment and 26% of employees who have telework flexibility say a better work-life balance is the top benefit of working outside the office.
Just over one in five respondents (21%) are drawn to teleworking because they prefer to set their own hours.
