Telecommuting has been a hot topic for years, but earlier this year, it took center stage when Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer eliminated telecommuting for all employees. You can read some of my thoughts on that decision by following the previous link and by reading the transcription of my interview with NPR.
I’ve published some informative infographics about telecommuting here on Women on Business over the past year, including:
- The Real Benefits of Telecommuting Infographic
- Americans Speak out on Telecommuting Stress, Benefits and Demands Infographic
- The Perks of Working from Home Infographic
Now, I have a new infographic to share with you, which comes from HowDoIBecomeA.net. The World of Telecommuting infographic provides a global look at telecommuting and includes statistics related to the number of workers who telecommute by country as well as opinions about the benefits of telecommuting across numerous countries.
Did you know that one in seven employees around the world telecommute frequently and just 7% of the global workforce works from their homes every day? Did you know that six in ten employees around the world would telecommute if they were given the option to do so? Those statistics and more can be found in the infographic below.
