Despite the fact that the remote workforce continues to grow and evolve, there is still much debate about its benefits and productivity compared to those of a traditional workforce. A recent survey and infographic illustrate the positive aspects of remote work, which is often a great option for cancer patients and survivors who want to keep working after a diagnosis.
The survey, from ConnectSolutions, found more evidence that working remotely benefits both employees and employers. Some of the findings include:
- 77% of workers report greater productivity while working off-site
- 45% report getting more sleep
- 53% report reduced stress
- 50% say being able to work remotely, at least part-time, makes them much more likely to stay with the company
