Recent years have seen a significant increase in the remote workforce as developments in technology have given employees the freedom to work anywhere, anytime. According to Forrester, U.S. telecommuting will swell to 63 million adults this year.

Select jobs are easier than others to do remotely – such as writers, engineers and recruiters – but more industries are impacted by the rise of remote work today. Contact centers in particular are pioneering the remote work trend by hiring customer service agents that work remotely 100 percent of the time when powered by the right technology.
