Some Fast Facts About Working from Home

Back in the age of Don Draper, everybody punched into the office in their crispest suit and weathered the 9 to 5 storm at a company desk. But those days are over, and frankly the business era we've moved into is a far more productive - if somewhat less glamorous (and less inebriated) - one. Google LogoThanks to unified communications solutions, bring-your-own-device policies and work from home solutions are becoming increasingly common at offices across the country. And if you thought working from home would present a detriment to office culture, we're here to tell you you're sorely mistaken. Here are some fast facts about the virtues of working from home:
  • One-third of companies these days are permitting their employees to punch in from home base semi-regularly. 
  • Three out of ten people working from home do so in their PJs, according to a CareerBuilder infographic.
  • People experience a 10 to 20 percent boost in productivity from their couch, according to a Splashtop infographic.
  • Splashtop also reported that 8 out of 10 employees are able to have a better sense of general equilibrium when they're permitted to work from home. You know what stability means, right? Better work. 

Also, here's a quick list of things you won't have to worry about - and therefore time you'll save - when working from home:

  • Choosing an outfit other than pajamas.
  • Filling up the car with gas.
  • Commuting - and may we add that in an age when the normal commute time comes out to 1.5 hours a day, that's a lot of time saved. 
  • Having to run to Starbucks, since your coffee machine's right there.
