Remote work is on the rise. A report from Flexjobs projects that 3.9 million Americans work from home at least part-time. This is a 115 percent rise compared to 1.8 million in 2005. Hiring managers in the report predicted that one-third of employees would work from home in 10 years. This data is a strong indicator that you are likely to manage an employee who works from home in the next decade.
