Why Work from Home?
A recent study has found that the number of people working from home in the UK has increased by 20% in 10 years. Home insurer, Together Mutual Insurance conducted the research to find out why people are working from home.
The main reason given by employees for working from home was to avoid commuting. Additionally, over a third opted to work from home to avoid the distraction of their colleagues, allowing them to concentrate on their work. Nearly a quarter decided to stay home so that they can take a break whenever they feel like it.
The survey also revealed that 20% of us would work from home more if it were not for their company putting a limit on the number of days allowed.
