About a decade ago, telecommuting was touted as the trend of the future. Now that future is here and telecommuting has become the reality for numerous companies and employees. According to recent studies, 70% of employees across the world work remotely at least once per week, and approximately 53% work remotely for at least three days of the week. Several recent surveys of employees’ attitudes towards telecommuting further note that employees report that they are more productive when they are allowed the flexibility to work remotely, while close to 90% of the U.S. workforce reported that they would prefer to telecommute at least half of the week.
