There’s no doubt that if given the option, most employees would choose to work from home. You don’t have to get dressed (hey, you don’t even have to shower if you don’t want to!), you save on gas money and, of course, no more awkward chatter with coworkers you pretend to like. You can eat lunch in your own kitchen and, provided you have a good coffee pot, score unlimited refills on your morning cup of joe!
Work From Home On The Rise
Thanks to the technology-driven age we live in, this dream is reality for many Americans. In fact, according to a report from Global Workplace Analytics and FlexJobs, the number of telecommuting workers has increased 115 percent in the last decade. As companies adapt, many are turning positions once suited for office work into work-from-home jobs.
What are you waiting for? It’s time to ditch the commute and start your new remote career.

It is also about emotional and spiritual health, purpose, belonging and security.”
