Wednesday, May 28th 2014 · 0 COMMENT

The question asked was what does the future look like when comparing work from home to traditional jobs.

The answer and supporting stats suggested the following:

We are at a tipping point and organizations have begun the transition to a more mobile/work-from-home friendly environment. The traditional office structure will not disappear, as some individuals will still prefer face to face interactions, yet the work-from-home model will become much more appealing and prevalent across organizations.

• Statistics:
o In the next nine years, 41% of the workforce will be working from home.
o Telework predicts that people working from home in the U.S. will increase by 63% in the next five years.
o According to the Labor of Bureau of Labor Statistics, approximately 65 million American are expected to be freelancers, temps, independent contractors or solopreneurs making up about 40% of the workforce by 2020.

So needless to say we here at 8athome recognize that we are helping you, the readers and users of 8athome push into the next paradigm of how the world will work.
