Here is an interesting study from this Microsoft Presspass article: Remote Working Now a “Business Imperative” This chart demonstrates both the progress we’ve made in making it easier to work from home and where we are just not quite there yet.
I note that if you don’t have a college degree and are working a minimum wage job, there are basically no real options for you. I mean it’s near impossible to sell a Starbuck coffee or a McDonald hamburger from your home. I’m just sayin’…
My fav part:
“This type of remote working – dubbed “work without walls” – allows for greater productivity, customer satisfaction and employee satisfaction, Markezich said. Remote working technologies enable people to conduct business from anywhere in the world at any time, putting employees in front of their clients and customers, and accelerating the pace at which business results are achieved.”
Note: As I’ve said repeatedly, this blog is mostly for me to find stuff going forward. Now I can pull this article at a moments notice should any of my managers have any questions about my Work at Home Wednesday mentality.
