Can Employees Be Trusted to Work From Home

August 13, 2012

Working from home is great. But it can also be highly distracting.
One recent study found that more than 40% of employees who work from home pull double-duty watching TV or a film. More than a quarter nap or cook dinner while on the clock, and 20% play video games on the company dime, according to a Citrix survey.

So it’s no wonder many bosses still oppose the work-from-home concept. But times are changing. From 1980 to 2010, the percentage of workers who work from home nearly doubled, according to some estimates, as digital tools have made doing so exponentially easier.

The Internet education portal pulled research from sources including Stanford University, Microsoft and to create the infographic below. It provides a comprehensive overview of how common working from home has become and how businesses and employees are adapting.
