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.
