Do you work from home? Is a home office a MUST on your new home list?  If your employer is following the growing trend, you can work from home at least 1 day per week.


Home Office



According to Global Work Trends Analytics:


Overview


While there is no Census Bureau or government produced data provides additional granularity on the frequency of telework, Global Workplace Analytics’ research finds that:

  • 50% of the US workforce holds a job that is compatible with at least partial telework and approximately 20-25% of the workforce teleworks at some frequency

  • 80% to 90% of the US workforce says they would like to telework at least part time. Two to three days a week seems to be the sweet spot that allows for a balance of concentrative work (at home) and collaborative work (at the office).

  • Fortune 1000 companies around the globe are entirely revamping their space around the fact that employees are already mobile. Studies repeatedly show they are not at their desk 50-60% of the time.

  • On average, a telecommuter is college-educated, 49 years old, and earns an annual salary of $58,000 while working for a company with more than 100 employees. 75% of employees who work from home earn over $65,000 per year, putting them in the upper 80th percentile of all employees, home or office-based.


Summary of trends:


  • Regular work-at-home, among the non-self-employed population, has grown by 103% since 2005.

  • 3.7 million employees (2.8% of the workforce) now work from home at least half the time.

  • The employee population as a whole grew by 1.9% from 2013 to 2014, while employees who telecommuter population grew 5.6%.


Here is a quick list of local homes with a home office.
