4.3 million U.S. employees (3.2% of the workforce) now work from home at least half the time according to GlobalWorkplaceAnalytics.com (July 2018) More American employees are working remotely, and they are doing so for longer periods, according to a Gallup survey.  43 percent of employed Americans said they spent at least some time working remotely, according to the survey of more than 15,000 adults. That represents a four percentage point increase since 2012, a shift that meets the demands of many job seekers.

The work-from-home job force just got a big push from the current global coronavirus pandemic. But even before COVID-19 became a factor, increasing numbers of people have been saying goodbye to their onerous commute to work. Thanks to ever-evolving technologies like Skype, Facetime, Slack, Zoom, Google Hangouts, authenticator apps, and cloud computing—not to mention texting and email—it's no longer necessary to be in an office full-time to be a productive member of the team. In fact, many kinds of work can be done just as effectively, if not more so, from a home office.
