Some Remote Work Stats

Interesting survey on remote workers. Here are some highlights for me.

60% of remote workers work fixed hours.

So that’s a typical 9-5 job and while the post talks about the benefits of working in your PJ’s, they don’t mention that many of these people drop a huge commute. If I had to drive into Vancouver and worked 9-5 I’d leave at around 7am and get back around 6 - 7pm.

Huge time savings by working at home for so many.

While there are some other interesting stats, that was the one that jumped out to me. I like hanging out with my kids, even when they get up 5 times in the night like last night.
