Remote working is a divisive issue. Prior to the outbreak of the global coronavirus pandemic, the working world was gradually waking up to the benefits that it held; between 2005 and 2019, Global Workplace Analytics discovered that working remotely had risen by a shocking 140%, whilst telecommuting has risen a total of 115% within the past decade.
And yes, overall it does seem to have positive ramifications for both workers and businesses. SmallBizGenius data found that 40% of workers feel the greatest benefit of remote working was the drastic increase in flexible scheduling, and as a result those companies that allow it see a 25% lower turnover. People who work remotely are on average 24% more likely to be happy and productive.
