Listen Now: Working From Home: Why Employers Must Embrace To Compete
Want to improve your job performance? Stay home.
According to a survey from Sure Payroll, 86% of people prefer to work from home. And while that might not be a surprise, turns out it’s something employers should aspire to, as well.
Forbes took a look at some of the best reasons why remote employment can benefit both sides. For example it can reduce annoying distractions from co-workers, surprise meetings and extended lunches.
Being in your comfort zone can also reduce stress, especially when you do away with your boss leaning over your shoulder or sitting in traffic.
On the employer side, having employees telecommute can save money on large office spaces by having less people around, something even easier if all your communication is done via phone or email.

Technology is rapidly changing which means telecommuting is getting a lot more efficient… and it cuts commuting costs as well.
