Remote Work Round-Up - June 27, 2017

Dreaming of working remotely, but not sure how to approach the subject with your boss? The best defense is to arm yourself with data on how working outside of the office will benefit the business entire.


According to Samantha Harrington from Forbes, here are four irrefutable facts to convince the powers-that-be.

"1. According to Gallup, remote workers log an average of four more hours a week than their on-site counterparts.

2. People who work from home get more sleep and are more attentive, according to Penn State University.

3. A typical business can save $11,000 per employee per year by letting them work from home 50% of the time according to a study by Global Workplace Analytics.

4. Meanwhile, Gallup found that people who work remotely 20% of the time are more engaged in their work."

If the figures found above don't do the trick, don't lose hope. Below are a gaggle of great remote work opportunities to get you going - or staying (at home, that is).
