Before COVID-19, working from home was a massive advantage for anyone seeking work-life balance. In fact, some people would ask their managers if they could work outside the office even if it were for a day (to start with).
The benefits of allowing employees to work outside the office are enormous. But for those who still express their doubts, there are plenty of statistics to suggest that working from home can be highly beneficial.
That’s why the team at Myergonomicchair compiled a list of remote working statistics into this visual guide.
