Staying on Track

Sixty-one percent of workers have no trouble staying on track.

Even with to-do lists and agendas, meetings and deliverables change frequently. Constantly changing schedules could seem to pose an even larger challenge while working from home, but more than half of remote employees are keeping their projects on track. Through the use of email, text apps, and virtual conferencing, it's becoming increasingly easier to get information and questions answered from dispersed coworkers in real time.

Working from home is becoming the new norm for many industries. According to GlobalWorkplaceAnalytics.com, the number of regular work-at-home among the non-self-employed has grown by 103 percent since 2005, with 3.7 million employees now working from home at least half the time. Advancements in technology have made for a more flexible and virtual workforce, but many still perceive working from home as less productive and collaborative when compared to being in the office. The shift toward this trend of productive remote working, however, is just beginning and it's gradually proving various work-from-home myths all wrong. Findings from a recent join.me survey bear out the growth of remote workforce collaboration and productivity, and the positive impact of technology.
