With over 3.7 million employees working from home at least half the time, telecommuting is more popular than ever.
In this report, we break down the latest working from home statistics.
Now that you know the key figures in telecommuting and working from home in 2017, let’s dig a little deeper into what the landscape of work from home employees really looks like in the United States.
Keep reading for more interesting working from home statistics on telecommuters in the United States.
Having employee productivity issues in the workplace?
Work from home statistics suggest that telecommuters are more productive workers.
Two-thirds of managers report that employees who work from home increase their overall productivity.
Even more, 86% of employees say they’re most productive when they work alone—devoid of distractions like inefficient meetings, office gossip, or loud office spaces.
On average, telecommuters have a higher income than non-telecommuters do.
Here’s how it breaks down:
Among those employees who make $100,000 a year or less, the average telecommuter makes approximately $4,000 more on their yearly salary than the average non-telecommuter.
How many telecommuters are making $100,000 or less? 79%, compared to the 67% of non-telecommuters.
The average income for non-telecommuters is $41,705, compared to $37,657 for the average non-telecommuter in the $100,000 or less income bracket.
The most telecommuters hold management positions at their companies, as 16% of all telecommuters identified as managers.
The rest of telecommuters’ occupations breaks down as follows:
Around 53% of telecommuters have at least a bachelor’s degree, compared to the 37% of non-telecommuters who hold a bachelor’s degree.
But data shows that not all jobs with work from home flexibility require a higher education degree, as 20% of telecommuters only hold a high school diploma (or less).
Working from home statistics suggest that companies who offer a telecommuting option for employees have lower turnover rates.
In a Stanford University study, employers who offered a work from home option had employee turnover rates fall by over 50%.
Turns out, larger companies are better suited to offer a work from home option to at least most of their employees.
Telecommuting flexibility is more than twice as common in large companies (defined as those with more than 500 employees) than smaller one (those with under 100 employees).
12% of large companies offer telecommuting benefits, while only 5% of small companies offer the same flexibility.
If you’re looking to bring in a bright, new class of recently graduated candidates, consider opening up your benefits to include work from home flexibility.
68% of millennial job seekers said a work from home option would greatly influence their interest in working for a company.
In fact, out of all the benefits that make a work environment fun, casual, and flexible (regular social activities, casual dress code, free snacks and drinks, etc.), working from home benefits were the most important to young job seekers.
The stress of working in a traditional office can be removed by working from home.
Work from home statistics show that 82% of telecommuters reported lower stress levels.
And less stress comes with happier, more engaged employees, data shows.
80% of telecommuters report a higher morale, and 69% of telecommuters reported lower absenteeism.
