Here is a cool info graphic from Staff.com about working from home. I am definitely in the majority in terms of eating healthier and being less stressed out. But I’d like to explore the statistic that 70% of workers want to work at home (81% if under 45). Does this surprise you?
I can’t help but wonder if there is a lot of “the grass is always greener” going on here? Do these people believe they could and should work from home? What would that statistic be after you dispelled a lot of the myths out there about working from home. It’s not all pajamas on the coach while watching TV while you pretend to work.
There is no question, I prefer to work from home, and I’ve gotten very good at it over the last 20 years. But, this gig isn’t for everyone or every job! In fact, I’d say that 70% of the jobs out there aren’t suitable for work at home arrangements. What would interest me the most is what percentage of workers in jobs that could be done remotely are actually working remotely. Any great stats folks out there to figure out how to measure that one?
Enjoy the graphic and sound off!
