You might be surprised to discover that working at home isn’t for everyone. Some people prefer the routine and external cues that come from leaving the house and working in an office. Others find the isolation difficult. Some can’t get themselves organized or motivated to work.
However, if you have what it takes to work from home, you’re in luck. Working at home is possible. Many companies see the value in increased productivity and reduced expenses that come from telecommuting, so more home-based jobs are available. In fact, according to the infographic below from NeedaOffice, the number of people working at home is expected to grow to 63 million by 2016.
I love infographics. They’re the ideal way to deliver great information fast in an easy to understand format. So I was happy to share this infographic sent to me from NeedaOffice that has all sorts of great work-at-home stats and information, including tips on determining if working at home is for you.
