With all the technology available to us these days some of us are now lucky enough to have the opportunity to work from home. I am one of those lucky few, and I'm so grateful for it!
I'm someone who loves having the flexibility to work out of the office if I need to and I find it really helpful to be able to work from home sometimes. I think I'm probably most productive when at home and it's great to have this as an option when I really need to knuckle down and get things done. I know this isn't the case for everyone so it would be really interesting to find out...
Where do you feel most productive?
When FlexJobs asked respondents to the survey which factors were most important to them when contemplating a new position or job, salary tied for second alongside work-life balance. The number one most chosen element of a prospective job (chosen in 80% of surveys) was work flexibility—the ability to break from the usual time and workday schedule to build a work-life that makes sense to the individual. If given more work time flexibility, almost all (97%) of the 3,100 respondents felt their quality of life would improve and 87% said it would reduce their overall stress.
