Attitudes toward telecommuting

Give us an option …

Only a quarter of respondents said having a remote work option was not important when considering a job offer.

… but we’re happy at the office

Somewhat counterintuitively, though, three-quarters of those surveyed preferred to work onsite with a company to working remotely.

People who need people

Of those who preferred working onsite, office camaraderie was cited as the No. 1 reason for the preference.

Remote productivity

Those who preferred working offsite most frequently named better productivity and the lack of a commute as their reasons to work from home.
