The number of people who work from home is rising as the traditional nine-to-five becomes a thing of the past, and employers and employees embrace the benefits of remote working. For some, this might mean a flexible approach to working in and out of the office, while others work from home on a full-time basis.
The TUC found that the number of people working remotely in the UK had increased by nearly a quarter of a million over the previous decade, and it's predicted that, soon, over half of the UK workforce will be working remotely.
Meanwhile, in the US, a 2017 study by Global Workplace Analytics revealed that the number of people telecommuting (working from home) at least half of the time rose from 1.8 million to 3.9 million between 2005 and 2017. And that number is continuing to grow.
Technology and our ever-increasing connectivity have played a big part in this shift to remote working. Smartphones, tablets and laptops allow us to check in with the office 24/7, while cloud systems and collaboration tools such as Slack give us the ability to connect and work with colleagues and clients around the world.
Rising office prices, the growth of the gig economy and more emphasis on balancing work and personal life have all also contributed to a more fluid approach to where and when we work.
