Before the global pandemic took over the world and stalled economic development just about everywhere, the whole idea of working from home was considered to be a big bonus for just about any office worker.
In fact, many employees would seek strategies that would help them stir their management towards allowing them to stay out of the office for a day or two (to begin with) during the week!
Right now remote working has almost become the new normal for a large number of people that are engaged in finance, education, business development, and other sectors.
While we certainly can’t know the long-term consequences of having so many people turned to their new home office reality (especially those that didn’t badly want it), we can look back into what we already know about working remotely.
Guys at Myergonomicchair put together an infographic called “8 Research-Based Remote Working Statistics” that shows exactly that data…
Check it out and scroll down for the statistics breakdown!
