Remote working has become significantly more popular over the last two decades. An analysis conducted by FlexJobs and Global Workplace Analytics found that, between 2016 and 2017 alone, there was a 7.9% increase in the number of people working remotely.
This demonstrates that more people are turning away from the traditional office culture to jobs where they are able to work from home, for either part or all of their week. It makes sense that more people are working from home, given how remote workers are usually given more control over schedules and have no commute to worry about.
It’s not just that remote working is more flexible for employees. Research has found that people who work from home are less stressed, and perform better than those who work in an office. It’s no wonder why remote working has become more popular.
