According to recent IWG flexible work report, half of all employees globally are working outside of their main office HQ for at least 2.5 days a week. Another study, by telecommuting research firm Global Workplace Analytics and recruitment firm FlexJobs, found that 4.9 million American workers said they telecommuted in 2017, representing an increase of 159% from the 1.8 million U.S. employees that said the same in 2005. There are 3.9 million Americans or 2.9% of the total US workforce who work from home at least half the time. And the numbers go on… Estimates say that by 2028, 73% of all departments globally will have remote workers, with 33% full-time employees working remotely (Upwork, 2019).
