How would you like to work from home? No hustling out the door 10 minutes late, no fighting your road rage or battling for the last seat on the train, no fast food lunch and no noisy co-workers. Sounds like heaven, doesn't it?
More than ever, workers are attracted to the 30-second commute, thanks to social and economic trends. Technologies necessary for setting up a home office are widely available, relatively inexpensive and getting easier for people to use. And more workers are seeking flexible schedules to care for children and aging parents.
Many people associate working from home with starting a home-based business and becoming an entrepreneur, but more and more employers are offering this option to workers in order to attract and retain top employees. In fact, 7.6 million employees conduct work from home every month.
