Are Remote Workers Happier Than Office Employees?

remote workers infographic

Let’s face it.

Remote work is here to stay. Technology has made it so that communicating with workers around the globe is easier than ever before.

The ability to source the talent on a global scale has given employers the ability to hire the best possible person for the job, regardless of where she lives.

And do me a favor and raise your hand if you’ve ever uttered this before: “I get more work done outside of the office than I do when I’m actually at work.”

TINYpulse, an employee engagement company, “surveyed 509 U.S. employees who work remotely at all times to find out about their experiences in the workplace and compared their responses from over 200,000 employees across all types of working arrangements.” (source)

We borrowed their data and turned it into a beautiful infographic that is easy to digest.

  1. Hey Guys, this is a great topic. I have been working “remote” or as we called it at Elance, freelancing for the past 8 years. I have gathered mountains of experience, hugely developed my skills have glorious tales to tell and plenty of tears to talk about. 🙂

  2. Interesting stats on remote working vs working in an office. Thanks for sharing Greg!

    I see the advantages of both and the stats back it up. Office = easier to connect w/coworkers, remote = better quality of life and autonomy.
