Gallup – Remote Workers Log More Hours and Are Slightly More Engaged

Gallup blog: A popular workplace trend — working remotely — made the headlines after Yahoo’s CEO required the company’s remote workers to return to the office. The company made the point that employees working from home have fewer chances to collaborate with coworkers.  While not all companies allow employees to work off-site, new data from Gallup’s State of the American Workplace report shows that that nearly four in 10 (39%) of the employees surveyed spend some amount of time working remotely or in locations apart from their coworkers. And, Gallup finds that companies that offer the opportunity to work remotely might have some advantages when it comes to hours worked and employee engagement.”
