Remote work is on the rise. With nearly a third of employees worldwide regularly working from home, technology has clearly changed our concept of physical work space. Surprisingly, the overwhelming majority of participants in Work From Home (WFH) policies find their productivity increasing. Not only has productivity increased, but so has worker happiness, along with a decrease in stress.
If you're still not convinced, consider this: Millennials are very interested in flexible scheduling. Citing compensation & benefits as their largest consideration factor when job hunting, 68% of Millennials reported that a WFH benefit substantially increases their interest in potential employers. If your organization is looking to recruit Millennials–and they should, seeing as there are over 75 million of them in today's workforce–Work From Home is a great benefit to offer.
