It is becoming commonplace for employees to work remotely, thanks to the Internet. According to a new study, employees who can work from anywhere are generally happier than those who work onsite in an office. As it turns out, working remotely, or the idea of it, makes people happy. 83& of survey respondents “agree that the ability to work remotely would make them happier,” and 71% of workers who do get to work remotely said their job makes them happy, compared with 55% of office-only workers. Remote workers are 13% more likely than non-remote workers to stay with their current job for the next five years—making remote work a win-win for employees and employers alike.
